No more taxes

No more taxes

Our sales tax is already 8.4 percent. If a convention center adds 0.65 percent, our tax will be 9.05 percent.

I do not see how our economy has improved from the sports complex. Our city pool did not bring the people from out of town supporting it, though we did need the pool. The article in the April 6 Hays Daily News said fewer people are shopping and spending money in our businesses.

I don't think the sales to people attending a convention can make up for losing our area customers. I would not blame them for not wanting to shop here.

We need to keep in mind we will be adding taxes for a new water supply. That will be for a long time.

I wish we could get to vote on this project. I doubt the majority would support it.
