People Of Texas City & All People Must Realize That Taxes Are Needed For A Decent And Safe Society
The Texas City fire department and police department oppose the rollback. These public safety forces realize that providing city services costs money. And they understand that this money must come from taxes.
A group calling itself Citizens for Progress has been formed in Texas City to fight the rollback. It’s good to see an organized effort in support of the taxes that we all must pay to live in a good society.
Just recently, a person was killed in a fire in unincorporated Fresno, Texas. Fresno is just outside of Houston. Without municipal taxes, Fresno has inadequate fire service and this was a factor in the fatal fire.
The bottom line is that if you want a decent community and a decent society than you must pay taxes. The unending national anti-tax propaganda of recent years has undermined our basic quality of life and our national and personal security.
Let’s hope the people of Texas City stand up for their community and vote to maintain adequate levels of taxation.
