Unethical to spend taxes to sway vote

Although the Haines Borough Assembly, school board and planning commission have every right to voice their opinion on the upcoming Proposition 1 vote, I find it inappropriate and unethical to use taxpayer money to do so. The blue flyer that was placed in our post office boxes states, “Paid for by the Haines Borough Assembly.” If those in public service wish to influence voters, they should do so with their own money.
