Finally, we show some backbone and crack down on the tax-dodging scofflaws that don’t register their vehicles in West Virginia. It shouldn’t be too difficult to find them — just drive down any street in any Mason County community, and they can be found. They attend ball games, drop off their children at our schools, live in private and public housing — I even saw one parked at a polling place last November.
Stand along Viand Street and count any ten vehicles that pass by, and I guarantee three to five will have Ohio tags. For a while, I thought we had been annexed by Gallia County. As a Mason Countian, I do not want to subsidize their free-ride. We should have been doing this a long time ago — those tax dollars would have come in handy considering we’re taking a $429,000 hit on the county budget with the closing of one of Sporn’s power producing units.
I say, “Book ‘em, Danno!”
Mason County, W.Va.
