Voluntary fee an abuse of power by local government

| November 23, 2022 1:00 AM

I'm writing regarding the recent expose on NBC News Montana by reporter Damian Gritello regarding the Whitefish Community Sustainability Fund formerly known as the tourism promotion assessment fee. This fee charged to our local restaurants, hotels and car rental purchases is a clear illustration of the abuse of power by our local elected officials. It further demonstrates the need for balance, transparency and oversight in our local government. I hope citizens will keep this in mind when voting for new council positions next year.
