'Penny Power' signs are nice, but they shouldn't be paid for with 1 percent

May 3, 2013 - Vonda Huish, Riverton

Editor:

I read the article on "Penny Power" in the Ranger's April 19 edition. The article does not state how those signs were to be paid for.

Mr. Lehto, if you are paying for them, or they are free, thank you. But if they are to be paid for with tax dollars, especially from the 1 percent tax fund, forget it.

I voted for the 1 percent tax because our streets desperately need to be repaired, not to pay for signs telling me how my tax money is being spent.

I think most of us are smart enough to figure out the 1 percent tax is at work when we can drive down any number of Riverton streets and not breaking an axle.
