Sonia Faye says "Transplants change the character of the places they migrate too and turn them into the same cesspools that they escaped from in the first place. You come here for low taxes. Infrastructure increases taxes. Which do you want? Low taxes or infrastructure? Can't have it both ways."
This transplant didn't come here for low taxes - I came from Massachusetts - NOT a cesspool BTW - to escape winter snow and cold - period. I'd be happy to pay more in taxes to make infrastructure improvements and while I'm at it I'll throw in some extra for better schools.
Love Whole Foods, but we need a Trader Joe's on this side of the bridge as well.
@dp4 - Why else did northern retirees move here? The weather, the lovely city with so much to do and it's not Florida. I am a retired Massachusetts native and taxes had nothing to do with my decision to move here.
What's a small "r" conservative?
