Today's Morning Call has an editorial under the Another View section that supports the Amusement Tax.
There are a couple of things worth noting about the opinion.
The writer is the first person with any significant connection to the Theatre (besides Sal Panto) to go on record in support of the tax. He was the director of development at the State until early this year.
He has filed suit against the Theatre; alleging that he was fired after reporting one of the Executive Director's friends for theft (Express-Times 24 Feb 05) (Morning Call 24 Feb 05).
With all of that being as it is, his points were objective and well presented. He focused on the accountability of non-profit organizations to their donors. He also alluded to the problems that compromising the tax could cause for us common citizen taxpayers.
I hope this is not the last support the tax will get before Wednesday, because the compromise needs to be fixed.
