vote no on prop 4

Wister, OK

#1 Mar 30, 2012
On Tuesday April 3 all registered voters in the town of Poteau are asked to go to the polls and approve or deny the Poteau City Council and Mayor Shockley's request to impose a 5% tax on visitors to our area staying in the motels and rv parks.

Ordinance Z-722 is 11+ pages of gobble-d-goop explaining how the ordinance will be enforced, penalties for motel and rv park owners who do not comply and how the money will be used.

There is also language that suggests by approving the ordinance, voters in Poteau are also giving the Council permission to change their collective mind on how to use the money.

I will be voting NO on this proposition and I hope everyone will read it before they vote. You should be able to get copies at the Mayor's office or any of the motels here in town.
