Vote no on RICo sales tax referendum for schools
DAVID KIMBELL had the following letter in the February 17, 2015 Dispatch/Rock Island Argus. It is short, to the point and effectively makes the case against the April 7 ballot question. ..... marks paragraph breaks. " Once again the Rock Island County schools are trying to raise the sales tax on the middle class and poor. This is the third time the county schools have had a referendum asking the middle class and poor for money, but did the county schools have a referendum letting the people vote on Common Core or a referendum on demolishing Audubon School? ..... The sales tax increase will hurt South Park Mall; it will hurt all small business in Rock Island County. Vote no on the sales tax increase referendum."
