Letter To The Editor: Support Regional Transit GRT Reauthorization

on October 14, 2018 - 6:30pm
By PETE SHEEHEY
Los Alamos County Councilor

The citizens of four counties, including Los Alamos, voted in 2008 to authorize a 1/8 percen Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) increment to support regional mass transit. Although no ending date was voted upon, these counties imposed a Jan. 1, 2024 sunset date.

On this November’s ballot, we are asked to reauthorize the tax by removing the sunset date. I strongly support a yes vote to continue the high value transit services that it provides. For people here who don’t have a car or the ability to drive, good transit service is a lifeline.

PCA: What do you believe makes Los Alamos County special?
 
Scott: The outdoors is really one of the big things that kept me here after coming here. I think a lot of people that have come and stayed here are drawn to that.
 
Clearly, the science is for me a great part of who we are. It just pervades, with friendships, and the things that the community has to offer. I don’t know, it’s just very unique. I don’t know of any town that has that.
