Tax Increase Doubly Troubling


Re: The July 1 article about the Gila County taxes going up 11 percent.

Perhaps Gila County taxpayers consider the proposed 11 percent increase in taxes to be a rather minor figure. If so, wait and watch for the next seven years the (relatively brief) length of time it will take for them to double completely.

It's basic, simple arithmetic!
