To the editor:
Well! I never! If Marti Crow is so against the increased sales tax rate, why did she vote for it during a previous administration? As a Democrat representative she never saw a tax she didn't love. Some years ago when Crow was telling us why we needed to increase our state taxes someone wrote a letter to the Leavenworth Times with the address of where Crow could send additional tax dollars if she felt the need to pay more taxes.
Crow ends her long, craftily written letter by misappropriating scripture when she tells us that we are moving toward failing "in our duty to take care of 'the least of these' in our state." Attention: In Matthew 25 when Jesus said "ye" it applied to individuals taking care of the least of these – not to the Mommy-state or the Daddy-federal governments!
