Geez Ken why is that?
Of course you can - you and the rest of the clownbots just want to vote it in so you can again just tax and spend like always.

Vote for it and let's see how many of your clowmbot citizens decide enough is enough.

Were tired of paying for fat cat City Employees at the top end who get 6-7% pay raises while those less likely to be seen as making it are barely making it.

These blowhards are in full lockstep right down the path to increasing the tax rate. Seems like that is much easier than looking across the 1,200 employees and city operations and seeing what can be cut first without sacrificing safety.

Way to go Ken and company!
