Letter: Taxes just another way to give money to corporations




John Quinn

Franklin

To the editor:

Why is my Social Security called an entitlement and Metronet tax breaks called good for investors?

The Franklin City Council and mayor approved a $2.75 million welfare payment to Metronet as reported in the Daily Journal article of Dec. 11. This welfare payment was caused by having Metronet pay no property taxes for 25 years and calling it tax abatement.

I also just read about the recent “property tax increase” called “new fee” levied on all the water utility users in Franklin for fire hydrant maintenance.
