Thumbs Down to Sun Gazette for Promoting O'Leary's Environmentally Destructive Car Tax Decal Program

Hello Yupette,

I am just amazed that the County Board and the local media, specifically the Arlington Sun Gazette, would endorse County Treasurer Frank O'Leary's car tax decal program. This program unnecessarily generates at least 10 tons of plastic and paper waste every year. I have to believe that Jay Fisette's citizens environmental committee is another County Board charade for allowing this kind of environmental damage to continue. Where are the Republican and Green parties? The Arlington Green Party is keen to keep plastic out of the environment. The Republican Party is always complaining about wasted tax dollars. I guess they must be sitting around watching the NFL playoffs together and carping about County Government during commercials.
