In order to address the 1 cent sales tax which will be used to help the city continue to provide its services to the citizens, and support the city employees.
I typically am not in favor of sales tax because they are regressive, but the city currently in the short term has no other way of generating revenue. Therefore I support this sales tax increase while also encouraging the city leaders to find other means such as property tax to generate funds for the city in the future. I support because the city needs funds now in order to keep services going as is and could possibly provide for some capital improvements in the future.
The event will be at the Government Street Baptist Church Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 6:00pm
