Swimming pool tax stinks

I am having a difficult time accepting the $500,000 tax put on the county taxpayers for swimming pools. The Olmsted County Board has carried things a little too far.

Where was the Association of Townships? Rochester is addicted to a special sales tax that we have to pay for the privilege of shopping or dining there. The rural representation is like the tree that falls in the woods and no one hears it.

I am a retired farmer but haven’t lost my sense of smell. I can still tell if something stinks.
