Council President McTernan responded with a letter calling this a ...

Dietze: Cut Taxes/Red Tape And Boost Parking for an Even Better Downtown

Any Tax Code revision requires Congress to deal with tax expenditures. Tax expenditures are deductions, exclusions, ...

Give Me Some Credit

I used to think I was special.  

 

But it turns out I am not.  I am just one measly name in 143 million.
