We get letters

Posted By on Thu, Sep 14, 2006 at 9:26 PM

This one from Jim Lendall, the Green Party candidate for governor and former state legislator and here's Stephens coverage of the issue about which he writes:

Re: Today's AP story about Bobby Glover's bill to eliminate the sales tax on food -

I am the only candidate for Governor who has sponsored bills (several times) to remove the sales tax from food.   Where have the other politicians been?   I  wonder how, after all of these years, the other candidates suddenly decided that this would be the compassionate and right thing to do.

I sure could have used their help each time I attempted to remove the food tax.

If we could figure how that change of heart happened, there are many other good things we need to do for the people of Arkansas.
