To the Editor,
My name is Nick R. Fuscardo Sr. I live in Weirton, and own a barber shop.
I have been working on a disagreement with the tax department dealing with a personal property tax being imposed on businesses including their tools of trade. I feel that this tax is unfair.
I started this campaign in October 2012 to stop this tax. I contacted Senator Jack Yost for his help. He agreed to help me.
I set up a town hall meeting and invited officials from the county, state, and city.
I contacted Mr. Yost numerous times to remind him of the upcoming meeting. Senator Yost contacted me the morning of the meeting to tell me he would not attend as scheduled. I needed him there in attendance to help sponsor a resolution.
I am unhappy and angered that I had to cancel the meeting because of him.
I intend to do whatever I can to help defeat him in the next election.
I think we should be able to take our elected officials at their word. But he did not keep his.
Nick R.Fuscardo Sr.
