States with high tax rates are led by Democrats

Editor:

I understand a recent letter suggested flipping the party leadership in Orleans County would lead to reduced cost and spending.

The following states have the highest effective sales tax/income tax rates in the nation: New York, 12.7 %; Connecticut, 12.6%; New Jersey, 12.2%; Illinois, 11.0%, California and Wisconsin, 11.0%.

Which party controls a majority of those states? The party the writer is suggesting control the county?
