Live Within Your Means

Once again, a politician wants to pick someone else's pocket for his pet project. Stop It. Do you see what happens when they get "just another quarter cent" sales tax increase? The last increase has not even gone into effect before the idea of "just a little more" is floated again. Stop It!

Raise the fares to support the system. If it can't support itself, shut it down. Don't pick the pockets of New Hanover County taxpayers, again. Stop It!

Stop subsidizing Brunswick County. Why should New Hanover County consider a new vehicle tax ("just a little fee") or any other increase in taxes to support a route to Brunswick County? Does WAVE get any payment from Brunswick County for the route it runs there now? It's just like the massive bond (raising the future tax burden) for New Hanover County residents to pay for Cape Fear Community College's very expensive expansion. Do the counties or other states that send students to CFCC subsidize that cost? No. It rests squarely on the backs of New Hanover County taxpayers. Stop it!

Be responsible. Stop asking someone else to carry your load. Just one more feather may break the camel's back.
