So in an ironic twist of circumstances, a tax increase actually will result in more money in my pocket while helping police officers and fire fighters provide services to me and to other fellow citizens.
Oh yeah, the tax expires in four years. The thinking is that by then, the economy will rebound enough that the extra money won’t be needed. If our mayor can manage to pull that off, he needs to be elected to a higher office!
UPDATE: The sales tax increase passed, so my homeowners insurance won’t be going up!
