“Just received an auto-poll call:
Male voice – ‘We are conducting a survey in Grass Valley. Would you support a 1/4 percent sales tax increase in the next election for public safety?’
1 for yes, 2 for no.”
This poll comes amid well-publicized cutbacks in the Grass Valley Police Department.
I doubt such a tax would fly. Heck, I think the fire assessment, which I support, will be a struggle to pass, because we’ve gone overboard with the “anti-tax” mindset.
But in light of what’s going inside, not just outside of, our gated communities — “Armed Lake Wildwood Man Apprehended” (a school went into lockdown) — I wonder if “public safety” will gain more visibility.
