I was indifferent regarding the outcome of the recent effort to add two cents per dollar to the sales tax on food and beverage purchases at Payson restaurants and bars, possibly because its impact on me personally would have been minimal. I must say, however, that I was amazed by the fury and power of the opposition to it that was brought to bear on the Town Council.
One can only speculate what the results might be if the sleeping giant that is Payson's retiree community were to rouse from its slumber to push a political agenda designed to benefit the town's senior citizens. The impact could be awesome.
