To The Daily Sun,

I am writing this letter in reference to the "Go to jail" article in the July 26 Times.

A 9 percent tax increase in the county budget and millions for a new Jail. No one in the private sector gets a 9 percent raise, People are still losing homes, businesses are still closing. Any politicians who are for this are either Democrat, RINO or represents a special interest not the taxpayers of Belknap County.

The photo on the front page of the House of Corrections reminds me of my military barracks where we had double racks in about the same space for 110 military personal; we had no A/C, no fans, you just sucked it up. So invest in military style double racks and get three times the number of inmates in the same space.

Oh, I have a few Kleenex left over for Charlie Flanagan if he has run out; great letter Charlie.
