LETTER TO THE EDITOR | ‘Higher taxes for some’ article not too great


The article in the Feb. 19 edition of the South Whidbey Record had an article on “higher taxes for some.”

It was full of opinions, but had no facts to back this up. I believe the legislators and voters decide whether taxes will increase on the other parcels.

Not only did you report opinion in a very confusing way, later in the article you appeared to suggest that people would get tax breaks by committing fraud, when I think Mary Engle was talking about the regulatory burden.

I hope that more property owners do take advantage of the new law, if it comes into being, and grow more food on their farms for us to buy at the local grocers and farmers markets.
