Cynthia Meyer: Where are the jobs to pay for tax?

Personal commentary of writer

By Cynthia A Meyer

I have to agree with Eula Goetz's comments on raising taxes in Adair County. Many who will be taxed do not have children or other family members in school system, and can't afford an imposed tax.

Granted teaching is a thankless job, albeit there are many who teach their children at home who will pay the tax but not reap the benefits of it.

My question is: Where are the jobs that will provide for this tax?

It is obvious they are not in Adair County as many Adair Countians have to travel outside the county as far away as Elizabethtown, Bowling Green and Somerset and points in between to pay for this proposed tax.

It might be "About the cost of one pizza," but many of those who work outside the county can't afford the extra pizza after paying for gas to go to a job in another county that offers employment. --Cynthia A Meyer
