FrankGoodman 2 years, 11 months ago on Pros and cons for regional transportation tax

I will be voting against this tax because sales taxes are regressive, causing lower-income citizens to pay a disproportionately higher percentage of their incomes. If these projects are truly necessary for economic growth, then let the businesses and developers advocating them fund them. I might be convinced to rescind last year's property tax reduction or even to accept a negligible increase in my income tax if the case were made for certain transportation and transit projects, but as it stands, it doesn't matter to me what projects have been proposed and whether or not they will be effective because I simply will not vote for a sales tax increase.
