Staking a career on it

Greensburg Daily News

---- — Dear Editor:

Will the mayor and council members stand at the next City Council meeting, and unhesitatingly state the following?

“My belief in the necessity of City Ordinance 2013-2 is so strong that I’ll stake my whole political career to its passage. In no way will any funds derived from this tax increase ever be used to support airport expansion, airport capital outlays, or airport operating expenses. The city of Greensburg already generates enough tax revenues to cover those things and to erase any doubts, this tax increase will never, in this or any future year, be applied to the projected $32 million over 20 years the city will be obligated in support thereof.”
