Clement sawin 3/22/21 11:06 PM I oppose this for several reasons. Sales taxes are regressive in nature and affect those with the least means the most. The financial impacts on sales are not analyzed and the pdf link doesn't work. The overall tax rate for the county is not visible nor explained.
Barbara Kaelberer 3/23/21 1:44 PM I would like to see this Proposal pass. I also want social services and mental health to be a part of this.
