Letter: Leaders should pay their taxes
To the editor:
I enjoyed the article Sunday (“Overdue bills linked to elected members,” Aug. 4).
Elected and non-elected officials should set the example to follow. They are all providing a service to the citizens because this is what they chose to do.
Whether they are politicians, law enforcement, a county or city employee, they need to set the example for the people to follow.
There’s a famous quote: “They that cannot govern themselves, cannot govern others.”
Or, can they be referred to as the 47 percent?
