Tax vote during recession is troubling


City Council members Barbara Clark, Jerry Cummins, Mary Lou Jenkins and Mayor Jim Barrow all concluded the poor economy for the past years caused shortfalls and that you all were faced with yet another two years of shortfalls and a slow-to-recover economy.

And yet, all voted to add more tax to the people of Walla Walla. Don't Walla Walla City Council members realize there is a recession facing all of us?

Shame on them! Hopefully the people who voted for them will remember what they have done, and hopefully they will vote them out of office the next time they are up for re-election.
