I work for a company that does events bringing 100-400 people into town. The current hotel tax has madeus consider going elsewhere, 12.5% will help drive us out. 8% sales tax and 12.5% hotel tax, drives up cost considerably when talking about 100+ rooms.

With only 44.5% in the primary I am praying that there is enough people that will vote for 'anyone but Capps' we can finally get someone that will represent us instead giving Nancy her every vote.

The real issue the county needs to deal with is their bloated labor, benifits, and pension cost. Fix those issues and there will be plenty of money for infrastiurecture.But do not hold your breath .. This group will never do it.

Sadly the Indy endorsements are the way voters in this town vote. Imagine Capps for another 2 years? We should save expenses, leave her at home and just give her vote to Pelosi. The spend, tax and union front still running the city and county. I am still waiting for SB to wake up!

I have to side with foo on this. If you make a list of everywhere our tax dollars should go -- adult ed has to be near the bottom. Maybe Ken should take on pension reform to free up tons of money for lots of projects -- safety, mental health, infrastructure, healthy food, k-12 education., college education, preschool education. With pension reform we could do so much more!

Das, yes let's invest more in education. Let's do it by reducing what we spend on pensions. Start by Working to get all the original Brown pension reform points passed as a starter. Then go deeper.
Free up 20% of the budget (without the extra short term taxes) and then let's invest in higher education.

I think CCL has gone in the right direction, charging for classes. When I think where my tax dollars should go, providing personal enrichment classes is not high on the list. My focus would be to get people educated with skills that are employable so the can support themselves and their families, and pay for their own enrichment classes!
