Accept Walmart plan and be grateful for it

To the editor:

The naysayers oppose yet another project in Pittsfield — Walmart. Not good for Pittsfield, they preach. An economically depressed area, the city needs taxes from whatever company it can. Major manufacturing isn't coming back. Those days are long gone

These increases in property taxes are draining for the homeowner who has to endure one after another while the tax base shrinks. Take what's offered for this property and be glad someone is willing to clean up and use it. By the way, I just received my property tax bill — and yet another increase!
