Opponents of transit tax organize in Hillsborough
In November, Hillsborough County voters will be able to decide whether to raise their sales tax rate by a penny in order to fund a range of transit options including light rail. Several community groups and business organizations support the transit tax. But today at County Center in downtown Tampa, a new group opposing the tax was unveiled.
Sharon Calvert is treasurer of NoTaxForTracks.com and president of the Tampa Tea Party. She is opposed to Novemberâs referendum to raise Hillsboroughâs sales tax from 7 cents to 8 cents on every dollar.
Karen Jaroch is chair of the Tampa 912 Project. Jaroch says theyâre starting a new website, NoTaxForTracks.com.comments powered by Disqus
