Jeffrey Ellis: Let’s be more creative in using existing tax revenues

Mr. Poston's April 20 opinion piece "Measure E will help Grass Valley meet shortfalls" is what I expect from a politician.

Doom and gloom if you don't let us raise your taxes (again). Don't you think there was a reason Measure N had a sunset provision?

No matter that California has among the highest (maybe the highest) taxes of any state in the nation, and taxes on gasoline are obscenely high. Here's a thought: why not be more creative in using existing tax revenues, so that taxes don't need to be raised?

Maybe taxes could even be lowered!
