Local residents being ‘gouged’

OK, Blair County has doubled taxes. Altoona is raising taxes 10 percent. The Altoona Water Authority is raising water sewer rates.

My question is: How can we draw business and industry to the area when the people that live here can’t afford to own a home?

Will someone please wake up and think? We’re never going to help our town and county grow by gouging its residents and discouraging business and industry to come to the area.

This is just my opinion, but I’m sure I’m not alone.
