To the editor:
Once again the letters to the editor in the Beach Observer include misinformation and a complete lack of justification for the library expansion.
The letter in the Feb. 16 issue by Gayle Timcak supports the expansion with NO justification. Then she goes on to say, "there is no tax increase planned or expected for this expansion."
Where do people think the money came from? It came from the increase in our taxes over the past years: 34 percent in the last three years for me. When will someone in support for the library provide justification and answer the reasonable requests for information of why we need the expansion?
Pat Smith's Guest Commentary only criticizes the Town at length and provides less than one sentence on justification. People are frustrated with the Library Board's lack of response. That is why the Town is involved.
