In reviewing the results of the ballot items I was reflecting on how some of them passed. It occurs to me that many of the items passed due to really good scare campaigns.
local option sales tax
At tonight’s city council meeting the issue of the local option sales appeared again in the form of a new resolution to put the question on the ballot, again. It’s basically the same proposal as last year, a 1% extra sales tax within Burlington, with the exception that this time there is no promise of property tax relief.
