This is an open letter to Sen. Pamela Gorman.
You seem to have forgotten for whom you work. Please let me remind you, you work for the people of Arizona. I am a citizen of Arizona and a resident of the district you represent in the Arizona Senate.
Therefore, as a voter from your district, you work for me.
The majority of the Arizona Senate and the governor have been unable to reach an agreement concerning raising the sales tax temporarily by 1 cent to help close the budget gap and save some services to the people of Arizona. Since you and Sen. Ron Gould have blocked referral of this question to the ballot, I now want you to allow my fellow Arizona residents and myself to decide this question by the process of a legislative referendum.
Enough is enough. You have made your point – you are against an increase in taxes. However, I really do not care about your making points, your ambition or some pledge you made to get votes, I care about Arizona.
If the governor can trust the people, why can’t you?
