As taxpayers and voters in Gila County we wish to voice our strong objection to library budget cuts for any municipality in the county library system.
Gila County offers its residents few sources for intellectual stimulation. An informed, reading, thinking citizenry is a basic necessity for the health and well-being of our constitutional form of government.
The proposal to cut funding for libraries is the first step in undermining our democracy, and would be an unconscionable act on the part of Gila County.
