Sorry, but I am voting no.
And not just no, but hell no.
I am fed up with people who don't own any property voting additional taxes on my property.
Let the city charge higher admissions for the zoo and other venues.

In the park that was recently built in Martin Park, some of the people who don't pay these taxes destroyed the restrooms. breaking the sinks and urinals. Why build things for them if they are just going to destroy it? I haven't fully decided on which way I will vote, but I'm leaning toward NO, unless someone changes my mind.

When you receive someting that requires no effort on your part, you tend not to appreciate the item.

The more we give out, the more some people expect from us.

I am voting no.

Voting no simply because Jacques and his team have not been transparent enough about this tax.

I read how the funds are to be allocated if passed. Is the city getting into the business of running a public pool again? Didn't turn out so well last time they did that. I also don't like the crawfishing they do when asked about bringhurst. I know for a fact the plan is to demolish and build a lazy river. I'm sure it will be filled with those who don't pay for it all day during working hours while I work to pay the tax. I hope it fails miserably. Maybe then Jacques will wake up and realize he's losing all his supporters.
