Typical poitician. Ms. King thinks revenue comes from taxes and fees, when it really comes from money spent in the economy.
Did she even look at the poll? Does she even understand how much money comes from people spending money at the beach? Can she explain where the enormous amounts of property tax revenue goes?
Have they done any studies on how many people choose not to return to Wrightsville Beach because of thestupidly high parking fees?
I'm guessing the answer to all those questions is, "No."
95% of people on the poll said they go somewhere else. 95%!! That's revenue for restaurants, bars, surf shops, etc.
She's an ego-blind nut with no financial understanding of how revenue is generated.
I love WB, but I skirt the parking fees by paying property owners to allow me to park on their property. And I pay them more.
God bless the socialism movement in this country. It's like cancer - it kills the host upon which it feeds.
