Letters to the Editor, Aug. 7


To the Editor,

Thanks to all attendees of the Jefferson County Fair who participated in the Jefferson County Republicans’ “Vote your 2 cents” opinion survey of which entities in Washington, D.C. should be eliminated.

The vote results are: The Federal Reserve - 107, the U.S. Department of Commerce - 111, the U.S. Department of Energy - 159, the U.S. Department of Education - 353, and the winner is: The Internal Revenue Service - 770. Anyone interested in abolishing the IRS can check a website: www.abolishIRSnow.com

Thanks again to all participants in our very unofficial but fun survey.

Mae Huston
