Food pantry deserves tax relief
By Chris Tuck
After reading the editorial of July 29 regarding the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors’ decision to grant tax-exempt status to a food pantry in Elliston, I felt that I should share my thought process in reaching my decision. In voting in favor of the tax-exempt status, I understood that it did set a precedent, and it’s my intention to give the same careful scrutiny to each subsequent request.
