Re: “Pierce Transit loses bid to raise sales tax” (TNT, 11-15).
I totally understand voters not wanting a tax hike to fund Pierce Transit. I don’t use Pierce Transit often, but I have a daughter who has to use the shuttle and a granddaughter who’s a student and has a part-time job at the Tacoma Mall and has no car.
I realize they are just two people out of thousands who depend on Pierce Transit to get to classes, their job, doctor’s appointments, etc. In this economy no one wants an increase in taxes.
What needs to happen here …
