No TSPLOST

Here’s my “penny’s worth” on the proposed transportation special-purpose local option sales tax:

• I remember when the sales tax was 3 percent in Richmond County. Somehow we did OK.

• Promoters of the TSPLOST are saying we need a 10-year, 8 percent sales tax. I’m old enough to know that if the TSPLOST is approved, we will have a permanent 8 percent sales tax – that is, until promoters say we need a 9 percent sales tax.

Please take a stand and vote “no” on the TSPLOST.
