Readers Write: Unfair voting laws

Dennis Lynch
Truckee

Whether you support Measure U or not, one must ask the following questions: Why can people who don’t own parcels of land get to vote to increase the taxes of those who do? What would keep an individual who is renting from voting yes? After all, if you can vote in additional expenditures that you don’t have to pay for, why not?

Wouldn’t it be more equitable if everyone shared the burden? Why not a sales tax increase?
