To the editor:

Do we really need to amend the Wyoming State Constitution?

There are already three items on the Park County General Election Ballot asking the voters to approve the raising of funds for city and county use, sales tax increase, lodging tax increase and allowing pari-mutuel gambling.

Why does our state constitution need to be amended if local communities can generate more tax revenue when the local community deems it necessary to support local projects?

I personally do not think that the current political and social climate is appropriate for amending constitutions at any level, state or nationally. I don’t think there is any need to increase government’s ability to increase taxation or indebtedness. 

Try wisely spending existing income. Don’t spend what you don’t have. There are major differences between needs, wants and wishes.
