Thank you, Frank Norton Jr., for your letter, "County should cut to the bone before a tax hike" in Monday's Times. I believe you spoke for the great majority of Hall County property taxpayers.

We are all sick at heart with the economy and the ever-threatening dark cloud of tax increase. I urge all voters to vote out leaders such as Tom Oliver, who wants us to think that if the millage rate is not increased, the only thing left for the commissioners to do is cut out public services like police and fire department protection. We should vote for commissioners like Craig Lutz who stands for smaller government and lower taxes.

Thank you again, Frank, for speaking out for all of us in a way that others agree with but have a hard time speaking up and being heard.
