Letter: Tax question shouldn't be on table

On the Daily Globe's Web site, I noticed a poll on the question of raising city taxes to cover Gov. Tim Pawlenty's cuts to local government aid (LGA).

This is a difficult question to answer when we consider what our rural cities would lose (police officers, firefighters, nursing homes, hospitals) if we don't replace the money lost from LGA, but I would just like to point out that we wouldn't be talking about this if the governor hadn't unfairly targeted rural communities over wealthy suburbs for cuts.
