(Re. Dave Connell's letter "Mailbag: Pay attention to property tax bill," Oct. 21): I know your political party affiliation expects you to make such comments, but do they explain to you how our taxes/fees pay for more than salaries and pensions? I agree some salaries/pensions are very excessive, which has been shown even in our very own city. But I have yet to hear GE, IBM, other corporate giants, or any multi-billionaire traders on Wall Street raise their hand and say, "I will pay for a new bridge, upgrade our freeways, build new schools and make sure we have enough teachers and supplies, or ensure national safety at airports and train stations.

Regarding ?Savor Toll Road Victory? (Dec. 25), I respectfully request a correction be made on a reference that was erroneously attributed to me as follows, ?County Supervisor Pat Bates also argued that voters essentially approved the 241 Toll Road extension by passing Measure M, the transportation tax measure that funds it.?
