Weekly Poll Question: 1-Cent and Conservation

What should the City fund with Optional One-Cent monies?
What should the City fund with Optional One-Cent monies?

A recent survey conducted by the Sonoran Institute revealed that of 300 Sheridan County residents polled, 71% would favor spending 1-Cent funds on Parks, Trails and Conservation projects. The Sonoran report concluded by saying that “even when voters hear rationales on both sides of whether or not to include these purposes for funding, voters squarely side with the idea that it is important to protect these areas and do not view them as something that can be postponed.”

The survey results prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question: “Are you more likely to support the continuation of the Optional 1-Cent Sales Tax if conservation, parks, & trails are included?”

I'm a big fan of conserving as much of my hard-earned money as possible. That's why we'll be voting in favor of tax liberation on Nov. 2.
Lifting the burden of the regressive, one-percent sales tax, is essential to the well-being and maybe even survival of many Sheridan Co. residents.
Now more than ever we need to reduce gov't spending and lower taxes. It's the only way out of recession.
Remember: Freedom in November.
