Good sense statements in this letter | “And while the public complains about property taxes, lawmakers do nothing to institute change. Let’s look at the Harrisburg election results: Of the 228 House and Senate seats on the ballot, more than one-third were uncontested and only 11 incumbents (less than 5 percent) lost their seats. Voters, if you want change on property taxes, you need to change the politicians in Harrisburg. Stop re-electing them and hoping for change. Politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed often, and for the same reason.” – A letter-to-the-editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
