LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Metro's ask for new taxes is poorly timed
We are already struggling to cope with the economic crisis. My restaurant — Biscuits Cafe — is empty. My employees are laid off. While we are grateful for the customers who call us, our to-go orders aren't paying our bills.
It will take all of us a long time to recover from the economic crisis we are in.
I couldn't believe it when I heard that Metro has new income tax requests on the May ballot. I was shocked. Adding new tax burdens now on any of us — personally or business — is a punch in the gut.
Metro should have a better pulse on what is going on and not push for two new taxes. Especially not now. A new personal income tax as well as a new business income tax is unacceptable. I'm for sure a "no" vote on the Metro income tax measure 26-210.
