Fine, then give your own money to these fine causes and let me decide which cause to give my money to. Quality of life for my family is good roads and making sure criminal dirt bags are lockedIf you mean by socialist-liberal, that the community gets together to improve the quality of life in Otero County by promoting and preserving cultural diversity: enhancing the quality of cultural programs and activities: fostering greater access to cultural opportunities: promoting culture in order to further economic development within the county: and supporting programs, events and organizations with direct, identifiable and measurable public benefit to residents of the county in which we live? then yes, I am a socialist-liberal.
If you mean being involved in our community and helping the poor visiting the prisoner as Jesus proscribes, and improving the quality of life for all county citizens, then yes I am a socialist-liberal and I am willing to pay the 1/16th of one percent more on the gross receipts tax, making a grand total of 1/4 of one percent I will help pay for the funding of cultural programs in Otero County.
up! The county commission should focus on roads and public safety and leave the quality of life issues to the churches and perhaps United Way instead of stealing my money to support their pet causes for votes.
