    So we have to pay HEA extra so they can donate money to the Chamber of Commerce?

    And Buccaneer is donating to the Chamber of Commerce why?

    If they are taking money from us through HEA, taking other private corporate money and they work for private business, I do not understand why Homer citizens need to be taxed to support them. Homer City Council wants to increase tax on all of our food so we can give even more money to the Chamber of Commerce.

    I think there are a lot of business people serving other business people’s interests here, and no one is working for the citizens of Homer.

    And when it comes to HEA, the reason we are paying such high costs is because they support the Chamber of Commerce, they pay for community events telling us to conserve, they pay ads on radio stations even though there is no competition and no real reason, just to pad the bank accounts of radio station owners.
