Alexandria Mayor Allison Silberberg

Oh, really? So raising the restaurant tax seemed like a good idea to pay for affordable housing? How about this: cut somewhere else to pay for it instead of raising taxes. From now on we won’t eat out in Alexandria. There are plenty of good restaurants elsewhere. Then, instead of collecting 4%, you will get nothing. See how that works? If you want to get rid of something, tax it. Tax restaurant patrons, and you will get rid of us.
