Almighty tourist dol­lar

Rappahannock News - - COM­MENT -

Can­di­dates for the board of su­per­vi­sors, Mr. [David] Kon­ick and Ms. [Chris­tine] Smith, say they op­pose putting any dol­lars into pro­mot­ing tourism. What’s their fund­ing so­lu­tion — prop­erty taxes?

Tourism is one of the ways we can bring in rev­enue while keep­ing our ru­ral char­ac­ter! It’s also a source of em­ploy­ment. Artistry, B&B’s, restau­rants, winer­ies, brew­eries and farm prod­ucts are im­por­tant to our econ­omy and a promis­ing source of tax rev­enue.

With­out tourism, we could price all but the most wealthy out of the county. PAUL MILLER Sper­ryville
