Seattle Times letters to the editor

State Supreme Court strikes down two-thirds law on taxing

Seattle voters pay for service demands

The March 1 editorial on the state Supreme Court decision left the impression that Seattle voters are uniquely pointy-headed tax-lovers [“Two-thirds law dumped, but sentiment remains,” Opinion].

Do you miss the obvious — that Seattle voters are simply willing to pay for the services we demand? Perhaps voters in other parts of the state are not.

–Dennis J. Ortblad, Seattle
