A letter by George Heard (The Advocate, May 7) states that the BREC and East Baton Rouge Parish Public Library millages represent more than 50 percent of the total millage assessment. He must not have to pay any millages for education. The total East Baton Rouge Parish millage dedicated to education is 175 percent of the total for BREC and the East Baton Rouge Public Library. I don’t know about Mr. Heard’s property taxes, but when I factor in all of the millages I pay, those for BREC and EBRP Library represent 23 percent.
