If parents that decided to go outside the public school system, the one they know they’re paying for, can get a tax deduction why can’t we apply that same standard elsewhere?
This letter to the editor explores expanding that idea:
PITTSFIELD — Gov. Scott Walker, I live in rural Brown County. I feel the sheriff’s department affords me less protection than that provided to those in urban areas. Therefore, I expect that you will, at your first opportunity, forward to me a “voucher” check so that I may hire a private security firm. Said funds may be deducted from the state aid given to the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.
In addition, my town is unable to plow my road as quickly as I’d like so please forward a second “voucher” check so that I may hire a private plow service. Those funds may be deducted from the road aids that are paid to the town.
I also insist that you not ask for licensing, accountability or oversight of the contractors involved.I’ll be watching my mailbox closely.Gary Hanson
