One thought on “Coming Up This Week in Port Orchard

  1. Just another unfunded mandate by the state. It is so easy for them to make laws when they don’t have to consider funding them. When are the cities and counties going to stand up and say no way? Never, I believe, since it is easier for them to just tack on another tax to the populace.
