P-B ignores exorbitant tax assessments

I have lived in Rochester for 30 years and had hoped that the Post-Bulletin would turn into a paper that would truly serve the interests of its readers. This has not occurred.

Unlike the responsible St. Paul Pioneer Press, which does excellent investigated reporting, the P-B is essentially a mouth piece of local government and local economic powers and the DFL.

For example, the P-B has never published a piece on extremely high property tax assessments for local sewer and water projects, the poor condition of local streets, property taxes based on home values $30,000 to $40,000 above true market value, recent high government fee increases that are basically taxation without representation and in the face of a recession.

Your readers desire and need truly investigative reporting in the tradition of American journalism. The P-B needs new leadership.
