Local Republican Party To Oppose Possible Sales Tax Increase

Audio

Aired 7/8/10

The local Republican Party vowed today to mount an "unprecedented campaign'' in opposition to a possible November ballot measure that would ask San Diego voters to approve a half-cent sales tax increase.

The local Republican Party vowed today to mount an "unprecedented campaign'' in opposition to a possible November ballot measure that would ask San Diego voters to approve a half-cent sales tax increase.

"Should a sales tax increase proposal make its way onto the November ballot, we will mount a heretofore unprecedented campaign to defeat it -- and

succeed,'' said Tony Krvaric, chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego

County.

So far, there has been no specific proposal to put a sales tax increase

on the November ballot.

However, several groups have come out against the idea since The San

Diego Union-Tribune reported that Mayor Jerry Sanders, a Republican, is

considering asking voters to approve a half-cent sales tax hike as one of

several options being mulled to help close ongoing budget shortfalls and

restore municipal services.
