Renters pay taxes in other ways | Letters

The school levy vote was no joke. That’s how democracy in 2013 works.

Like Richard Ays, I too long for the good old 1790s when only white male property owners had the right to vote.

Those were good times. Not so good for the other 90 percent, but great for us.

Let’s put blame where it belongs.

If I own a rental property and can’t charge enough to cover my expenses like taxes, maintenance, mortgage, and the profit I feel I deserve I’ve made a bad investment or am a horrible landlord.

The renter is paying property taxes.
