Regarding the letter by Joan Sutton concerning property taxes: Perhaps one solution is only property owners, the ones ultimately footing the bill, should be allowed to vote on matters that require property tax for funding. That would surely be unconstitutional? Yet, aren’t others mandating a “taking” by their vote? For instance, a property owner has several properties. Those properties house 25 voters. It’s a levy/tax that will give their kids and others more stuff, make them “safer.” They think why not? We love new stuff. Twenty-five votes are yes, 1 vote is no. Consider all the out-of-state college attendees that register to vote in Idaho. The message is to vote. Not consider how their vote will impact years later after they return home.
