Local Republican Party To Oppose Possible 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
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.
