If these are truly attractions‚ why is it they need extra help?
Does an attractive house have difficulty getting sold? If these places don’t have the inherent appeal to be solvent on their own, why should taxpayers be asked to throw more money at them?
A more honest plea would have been “extra tax money needed to aid unattractive area locations.”
