If you have been following the local news lately, you have probably seen the debate on the adoption of the new (ASFT) Adequate Schools Facilities Tax. There are arguments both for and against the adoption of the tax. I for one support the new tax, not for additional revenue but in hopes it will slow the pace of the out of control development. I would sure prefer a tax on development rather than any additional increases in property taxes or any other new taxes.

Recently a staff member of one of our local papers took me to task for my support of the ASFT. Forget the fact that the first vote unanimous. For some reason Mr. Roy S. Trahan II singled me out for criticism.  Below are links to the editorial and my response. I thought some might enjoy the debate.
