Tax hikes will hurt business, county taxpayers; vote no
DAVID KIMBELL of Rock Island had this letter published in the August 31 Dispatch Argus. "Do the schools and Rock Island County care if they are hurting businesses, the poor and the middle class? How many small businesses will go out of business if two sales taxes are passed? ..... Do the schools and county care that the raise in the sales tax will devastate business and tax the middle class during hard economic times? ..... Vote no on the two sales tax increases."
