‘I voted no’ on sales tax

Published: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

As a senior citizen, I took advantage of “early voting.” As expected, the 1 percent sales tax was on the ballot again. Now it is for the schools. No mention of a “sports center.” 

Especially after the teacher’s strike that followed with raises, benefits, and nice retirement packages, I voted no. My taxes are out of sight now.

I urge all property owners to do the same. Enough is enough, already.
