Letter: Respond to insurance rate increases


If my insurance only increased by $100 a year, I wouldn’t be angry. However, with my excellent driving record, no claims, and credit score over 800, my rates increased over 43 percent, which translates into $560 for auto insurance and $240 for homeowners. You can’t explain this as being fair in circumstance.

People in Clark County and other bordering counties should recoup some of this cost by shopping in Oregon, and all Washington residents should vote no to anything that will increase our taxes. Not that voting in Washington means anything. After all, voters voted to reduce auto licensing costs.

But voting by the way we spend our money in this state may get the legislators’ attention.

Anyway, I need to go shopping and fill my car. Happy there is a Costco off Airport Way.
