Property owners deserve a say in how taxes are spent

To the editor:

We bought our Ocean City condo in 2002. Since then, at various times, we have wondered/discussed why we, as property taxpayers, have no really effective way to influence how our tax dollars are spent. For sure, we can write letters to the mayor, the newspapers and to town council members (even attend their meetings), but these efforts would not get the same attention as they would if we were voters. That’s the way politics works in the USA. As voters we might be more inclined to spend time and participate in OC government discussions and maybe introduce some lessons learned from where we live when we are not in Ocean City.
