My applause goes to Commissioner [Miranda] DeBruhl for standing up for taxpayers in the Deschutes [Brewery] case.
Taxpayers are tired of being forced to perform circus tricks for corporate blackmailers. It is a good first step toward ending the con game, where companies make their money by extorting taxpayers rather than earning it.
I support her efforts to end this reverse Robin Hood policy of stealing from the poor and giving to the rich corporations. I’m glad to see that at least she represents the interests of taxpayers rather than corporate extortionists.
I wish the rest of the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners would follow her example.
