Respond to A mystery map with a price tag

Original post made by Let's hear what people have to say! on Sep 28, 2012

I'd really be interested in people's comments about Taxes from Tim Hunt's article.

He talked about some areas being included in the Fire Tax, some, not.

He also mentions that we already pay an extra half cent sales tax for transportation, etc, but now there is a proposed additional half cent tax - double!
While I would like some of the things that the tax is supposedly for, the proposal has no sunset, no re authorization. When has such a tax ever decreased, esp. if there's no accounting or review?
I recommend you vote against a Permanent Tax.
