Guest Editorial: Jack Pommer’s lack of understanding

(Guest editorial from Bonnie Finley)

When speaking about increasing taxes on business on Feb.16, Rep. Jack Pommer stated, “Business does not care about Colorado.” I bet IBM, Roche, Seagate, Amgen and other businesses in Boulder County would disagree. They have all invested significantly in his district, providing jobs and tax base for many years. And who does he think provides the money he is busy spending? Sorry Representative, we can’t all work for the government. As a matter of fact, 84% of us work for private businesses.

His comment shows a complete lack of understanding and appreciation for the companies that have afforded the citizens of Boulder County jobs and such a beautiful place to live. These companies don’t stay in Colorado because it is a “business friendly” state. I understand that the legislature has to balance the budget. But demeaning the people, who ultimately provide the State with income, and its citizens with jobs, seems extremely insolent and disrespectful.
