Dickson has taxpayers’ best interest at heart | Letter to the Editor

I am voting for Darrel Dickson because he understands he has a duty to the taxpayer and is not afraid to ask the tough questions. He stepped up and had the taxpayers’ best interest at heart when the PSE gas utility negotiations for the city of Buckley were in front of the Enumclaw Council. He is a successful business person with a finance background, which gives him the knowledge to know what questions need to be asked.

I own four houses within the city limits of Enumclaw and will pay over $15,000 in property taxes this year. I have no problem paying my fair share of taxes but, like everyone else, I don’t want to pay more than I have to. If we do not stop the bleeding and figure out other avenues to generate income for this town we are going to be taxed out of it. This hurts not only the homeowners but also the renters, because as the property taxes go up, so do rents.

It is naive and irresponsible to think we can survive on no growth. Who better than someone who grew up here and is raising his family here to help preserve this wonderful community we live in?
