  1. And the Burien supporters were worried about Seattle taxing its citizens? I don’t want to say I told you so, but it’s ovbvious that Burien needs North Highline to survive. The license tab tax went down, so they’ll try a 1% property tax.

  2. Welcome to Burien all you folks (including myself) whom we annexed.
    Oh and guess what, this is just the beginning, all these stores we ran out of business by raising thier taxes and such so much, that we`ll just get from you now.
