Enabling Legislation (for the ballot): Board Bill 227
Say NO to regressive sales tax. City sales tax is already one of the highest in state. If Prop 1 passes, the sales tax in City will be 9.179% to 11.68%, depending on location and special taxing districts
Say No to raising taxes for to be decided economic development needs/wants. No funds are earmarked by percentage for the purposes promoted. If passed, the money can be appropriated for anything falling under economic development, including maintenance of The Dome or Scottrade (“upgrade the city’s infrastructure”).
Say No to more public funds being managed by yet another appointed board unaccountable to voters. This one would have 2 appointees from School Board, 5 appointees from Mayor, 2 appointees from Board of Aldermen
Say No to a tax that would raise no more than a drop in the bucket for Metrolink Expansion and obviously Metrolink Expansion is just the bait to get you to vote for it.
Say No to a proposal that supporters say would raise money for MetroLink expansion with no conversation about improving bus service.
