Sales Tax Important For Our Students



Having been an educator and coach for 30 years, I have noticed how people respond to requests to financially support education or other community services. We all find money to spend on the things that are most important to us.

It can be noted that people might balk at a 1 cent tax increase in financially troubled times to support education and local services, but have no hesitation at all in coming up with $200 or more for Suns or Cardinals playoff tickets.

Seems we are more willing to pay a lot of money to watch those who are really good at catching and throwing a ball than we are spending it on ensuring the future of our kids or community services.
