Farmers don’t need breaks in St. Lawrence County

When will our legislatures look at reducing taxes for everyone instead of a certain few? I just read about Patty Ritchie saying farmers pay $26.21 per acre tax, Blankensbush says $38, who is right? I as a forest owner, require no infrastructure am paying $71.32 and don’t have the millions of dollars in equipment, and buildings and zero revenue or subsidies. They can pay large prices for land and don’t have to pay minimum wages, I can’t. Now that we have conceded Casinos in eight counties, are losing industry, people moving out of area, who is the tax burden going to fall on? This is what I have read about “Representation for a Few all the time and nothing for the others.”
