Letter: No more politicians

Tom Botthello


The politicians in Carson City are attempting to expand their number at taxpayer expense. They want to add additional senators and assemblymen to the already-bloated Nevada State Legislature. Each additional politician on state payrolls costs Nevada taxpayers over $100,000 in additional direct and indirect taxes each year.

This is money that is taken away from the people of Nevada to support politicians. Nevadans are faced with major increases in their monthly energy bills and we cannot afford to pay the state government to expand the number of politicians. Please let Gov. Guinn and your legislators know that you oppose this increase in bureaucracy and taxes.
