Taxpayer irked

by spending decisions

Editor, Times-Dispatch:

The economy must be booming. The University of Virginia is raising its minimum wage to $15 per hour, and the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority doesn't have to collect rent anymore. Or, could these be a couple of bad business decisions? The money has to come from somewhere, right? As a taxpayer, it makes me sick how twisted this is. Tenants behind on their rent have an advocacy group? Either the city and/or state is going to come for more tax dollars, or send our overpayment back. I think we all know how this ends.
