The Dalles To the editor:
In response to Mark Ulrich’s letter of June 4 (Stop the Appeals), I would strongly recommend that all citizens of The Dalles read the congressional report that came out last month regarding WalMart and their business practices: http://1.usa.gov/ZLA3Fl.
I would also suggest that we all think long and hard about just who will be paying for the local infrastructure that a WalMart SuperCenter would require, and point out that WalMart would have the power to decide which businesses would be able to operate within the strip mall development.
That right there should alarm anyone that is interested in opening a business in this town.
