Commissioners belong in land of Oz

You have to laugh or maybe cry when you think how the citizens of Blair County voted in the commissioners of today believing they would work for and not against the taxpayers, which they are doing with this reassessment.

A lot of taxpayers are going to end up homeless after working and saving to have a decent home and not having to worry about a “Strawman” with no heart, a “Tin Man” with no brains and a “cowardly Lion” causing the loss of their homes.

In his Aug. 13 letter (“Reassessment’s yellow brick road”), Fred Albright was so right in associating the commissioners with the above characters.

The commissioners believe they will profit at our expense from their $3 million reassessment.
