I read the editorial “Property Tax Facts from local representatives.” Perhaps a better name for the article would be “Property Tax, making everybody feel good while giving them the shaft.” Their facts seem to be ambiguous and mind boggling.

Opinion: Tragic Veto of Carbon Monoxide Bill by Governor Burgum
The veto of a carbon monoxide bill this week by Governor Douglas Burgum was a tragic choice that will result in the injury and death of innocent citizens of North Dakota that could otherwise have been prevented. All this bill did was give the same protection to renters that homeowners...
