Your daily Letter to the Columnist — May 9, 2013
The economy in Roanoke is not the best, tough times for most.
But yet the newly re-elected 2012 mayor, David Allen Bowers, wants to raise taxes on Roanoke City folks, but wants a pay raise???
Vice Mayor Court Rosen says no to raising taxes in Roanoke City . . . What did Court Rosen say about the mayor’s pay raise???
The mayor is not a grateful person at all. I am a Democrat. If Mark Lucas runs again, I would vote for him.
Note from Dan: The most recent story on this subject by my colleague David Ress is here. In it, Court Rosen spoke against increasing the mayor’s and council’s salaries. But it looks likes it a done deal. Four council members — Bowers, Sherman Lea, Anita Price and Bill Bestpitch — appear to favor the raises.
