Letter: People of Oak Harbor deserve rent, tax cuts

Editor,

I think the people in Oak Harbor deserve a rent reduction and property tax reduction.

The Navy is bringing 36 more EA-18G jet airplanes.

It is impossible to hear your company at dinner most times unless they raise their voices. And the animals run for cover.

The military is giving Coupeville $867,000 for improvements to tourist attractions. Give it to the people that live with this noise and other environmental impacts.
