Letter: Too many mandates coming down

-A A +A
By Emilio Arago

At a time when the money changers tanked our economy:

• Our state mandates double-dipping and annual “special” sessions.

• Our county mandates double-dipping, and our city follows suit with mandated raise for our judge and charter mandated salaries for our councilors. They then opt for mandated toilets.

• You can hear horror stories at our unemployment office; while standing in line at the courthouse to pay property taxes; among students at Luna Community College, etc.

• Sure, the low-flush (?) toilets conserve water, but I can go our resident hydrologist one better: Outhouses — conserve water and don’t do it on the backs of our over-burdened, over-taxed citizens.

Enough with mandates.
