Letter: Walter is right about need to revise sales tax formula

Walter is right about need to revise sales tax formula

It is about time Erie County modernizes its sales tax formula. Ray Walter’s plan to give towns a greater piece of the revenue is overdue. Far too long the cities of the county have been receiving more funds than our towns. The city of Buffalo continues to receive more than all the towns combined, yet is financially sound enough to lend to the West Seneca School District. Our towns are neglected while our current county executive wants to continue to solely focus on the City of Buffalo. It’s time for a leader who will treat all of Erie County fairly; that leader will be Walter.
