What people of R.I. need is no new taxes
DAVID KIMBEL of Rock Island had this letter in the May 7 Dispatch/Argus. ..... marks paragraph breaks. "Rock Island Ald. Josh Schipp said Rock Island needs to raise more taxes. Virgil Mayberry wants the aldermen to have a pay raise and what are the Rock Island aldermen doing to the people of Rock Island, raising the water rate? ..... They are against a property tax freeze. They are for raising the sales tax 1 percent. They want to keep the food tax. The city of Rock Island wants to raise taxes on our property, food and water. What the people of Rock Island want is no more raising taxes."
