Eric piqued my interest with his second paragraph:
“Think of the budget adoption meeting, held annually in advance of the July 1 start to the city’s fiscal year, as the equivalent of the NBA finals for City Hall watchers – except, well, perhaps a wee bit wonkier.”
… As one sentence brought a question to mind, the next sentence provided an answer. This logical progression is one characteristic that I value about Eric’s writing. That, and his exceptional talent with the written word.
Your Walkability article was excellent. Thoughtful, comprehensive, well expressed, and darn good punctuation!
Reader email, in response to a tax policy feature:
Thank you for the great article you did on taxes and growth in Bozeman. I will reference it for a long time in the future to make taxing decisions and win lots of arguments with my friends.
