Sales tax is the only fair tax. If you buy items you contribute to the tax base. Some people do not work and NEVER intend to work. Some people do not own property. These people are not contributing to the tax base and yet they benefit from it. I think it would be great if sales tax was the only tax; this way EVERYBODY pays. Some politicians talk too much about distributing the wealth. Let's talk more about distributing the burden.
Arlington leadership is as corrupt as it gets. A major investigation needs to take place where the past two mayors are concerned and investigate the local police department as well. There is criminal activity in this little town that is purposely overlooked. The citizens are not protected. Many have armed themselves because they know if they call the local police for help NOTHING with be done. Is it due to payoffs to "look the other way" or it is just that they lack the education and leadership skills to do the job. Either way the citizens deserve better than what they are getting.
There is an old saying “If you snooze you lose.” Just because you went to bed did not put the voting on hold.
Really people CHEATING is a strong accusation. NO CHEATING took place. Jdsumner1 stated in his post “You can now vote from where ever or whenever you like.” There was no mention of a limited number of votes. No “third-party software or "voting aids" was used other than a finger on the mouse (MANY TIMES). The evidence of cheating that you say you have better be rock solid if you are going to make that accusation. The simple truth is that you had a flaw in your directions and your voting system. The fact is that the numbers for both top vote receivers’ rose rapidly just before midnight last night so if there are “cheaters” then they exist on both sides so let’s by ALL MEANS BE FAIR and award this to the rightful winner.
