Letters: Voters speak their minds

November 12, 2009

To the editor:

I read with interest the Edwardsville City administrator’s comments on the failed sales tax. What part of “no” doesn't he understand?

I, and probably 90 percent of the residents of Edwardsville, didn't get a pay raise this year, and it doesn't look good for next year. I say the city will have to tighten its belt more, just like we have to. No more taxes.

Maybe we could do without a city administrator as we did for years. That would probably free up a six-digit figure.

Granted, I think Web has done a decent job of playing the cards he has been dealt. I don't know him personally, but I have seen the city take some unpopular but necessary steps.

The problem is, they stopped short. There is more waste to be eliminated, and asking the citizens for more money is not the answer yet.
