Dear editor,

As a concerned citizen of Humboldt, I ask this question: Why do we exclude the people who have businesses in Humboldt but reside in rural Humboldt from voting on the sales tax issue. Humboldt business owners who live outside the city limits charge and pay sales taxes same as the residents of Humboldt. As an option, why not consider anyone who pays utilities to the City of Humboldt would have a vote on the sales tax issue.

To the citizens who care about this sales tax increase, you might take notice that you have to be a registered voter to vote on the half-cent sales tax increase. If you are not registered, you have until Aug. 28 to do so.
