Two recent Op-Ed pieces, an editorial and a letter to the editor, raise some interesting questions.

Editorial misleading

The Valley News Editorial “Nonprofits: Should they pay their fair share?” implies that not for profits don’t create jobs; paralyze economic development; serve hobbyists and insular groups (many of which represent seasonal residents;) don’t serve the poor; and create towns “preserved in amber” (aka playgrounds for the rich).

Breakdown tax relief received

A breakdown of the tax relief each non-profit receives would be educational for citizens and local governments in the North Country.
