Remove your fist
Bellevue government has been raking in millions of dollars from the development of downtown through enhanced property taxes and other income from utilities and money spent by the thousands of employees working in the new buildings. Bellevue should have ample income in the general fund to pay for the parks with no trouble at all [“Bellevue Parks, Yes!,” editorial, Oct. 10].
Bellevue has become like Seattle, King County and the state of Washington; it just never seems to get enough money from the taxpayers.
It wants to stick its fist deeper into our pockets. I urge a NO vote on the Bellevue parks levy.
Let the city learn to manage with a limited budget just as we taxpayers have to.
— Karl Wahl, Bellevue
