Good for business

Regarding the June 4 news article “Towns face revenue loss under new law”: I have to say I am disappointed (but not surprised) to see something positive for small businesses framed in a negative light.

I, for one, look forward to having a little extra time to focus on my business with one less picayune distraction. Maybe we can do without a few charging stations or a subsidized coffee house if we are really that hard up.

I think most would agree with a more transparent KISS tax policy on all levels of government – Keep It Simple Stupid.
