YOUR TURN: Kris Hines comments on a taxing week

WMC-TV VP & General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV VP & General Manager Lee Meredith

Many, many passionate letters this week from people who oppose Memphis and/or Shelby County tax hikes. For this week's "Your Turn," we chose Kris Hines letter. It was also sent to the Memphis City Council.

In Kris Hines' words:

"Government should be run like a business not like an ATM. We are hit hard enough with MLGW, gas, food, and losing home value without the City Council and the Mayor being one more hit to our pocketbooks.  I and probably most Memphians, have had to cut things from our budgets just to pay for necessities. The citizens of Memphis should not have to pay more money due to incompetence, cronyism, or greed. You may lose a lot more of your tax base because of people moving to Tipton, Fayette, or another county with lower taxes, less crime and a lot less headaches."

That's Kris Hines' turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
