RE: energy relief Yes or
By Robert Bates
August 28, 2008
First of all I would like to say that I understand Mr. Tillson's
concern about non-residents not getting the relief for the rise
of fuel prices. But my concern with having applications being
filled out by non-residents is the fact that there are a lot
of seasonal workers in the state that might try to take advantage
of that and fill them out as well, thus taking money from the
people who live here year round.
I don't think there is any
real way of knowing who lives here year round from those that
just stay for the summer months. I think we already have a problem
with jewelry shop owners from out of town reaping all the benefits
of this being a tourist destination and taking there profits
out of the city when the season is through. I'm no expert, this
is just my personal opinion.
