Letter: Look at plan again

Like any parent, I do everything I can to make my kids happy. It is a constant struggle and every winter is especially challenging. My son loves to ski, but as a single mom it is a real stretch on our budget. Between the equipment and tickets, it’s an expensive activity. But it is how my son connects to nature and his primary means of exercise in the winter. So, while it’s a sacrifice for our family, we find ways to make it work.
That is why I am opposed to a proposal in the New Hampshire Legislature to create a new ski tax. This proposal amounts to a skiing sales tax and it will only make life harder for families like mine. Thankfully, Governor Sununu has pledged to veto it.
