Facing a massive gasoline tax increase by an unelected board of bureaucrats, Orting Mayor Josh Penner and the Orting City Council passed a resolution outlining in the clearest possible terms, the PSCAA’s overreach and false premises. Mayor Penner introduced the concept of a council-mayor resolution and the council passed the resolution 6-1 on January 29th, 2020.
Strong leadership need not be silent leadership.
We need to be heard when faced with unfair and unethically derived taxes.
Although it took a pandemic in conjunction with near-universal confusion and outrage over their odd intent to save the environment by reducing the $ in the savings accounts of those that need it most. >the commuter class that can’t afford to live close to where they work< The PSCAA eventually made the correct decision and dropped their proposal to add $0.50 per gallon to our fuel bill. Bravo.
