Baseball Vote

Yesterday was voting day here in Casa Grande with the most heated controversial subject on the ballet: Should we increase city sales tax to 9.6 percent to raise money to build a Major League baseball training center.

The voters have spoken with a resounding NO vote. 78% voted NO, 22% voted yes. Yahoo....we won that one. (Guess which side I was on.) I did find it surprising that only 21.96 percent of registered voters turned out to cast their ballot. This was a big decision that directly affected everyone here so I would have expected a larger turn out.

P.S. In case you didn't know, the current sales tax here is 8.7%.
