Not to be out done, the first commissioner said he would be “shocked if we were wasting $35 million.” He went on to say “…you can only do that once. It’s not sustainable like a sales tax.”
It’s probably not the easiest way either. Just pass a sales tax and hear those registers go ching-a-ling. The other way you might actually have to work hard and make your dollars count…just like the taxpayers do.
