Endorsement: NO on Prop 3

Next Tuesday, Salt Lake County residents will be voting for a proposition to once again raise sales taxes to pay for "Roads and Rails."

Normally, this is something that I would get behind.

But I'd be dammed if I going to vote for a tax increase that the destination of the monies is unknown.

Will it go to an airport line for TRAX? A Draper Line? Rebuilding 3900 South? or will it go to building Utah County a commuter-rail line?

To many questions, without the answers.

The politicians ask us to trust them. They also have land in Central Tooele County to sell them if you believe them.

I posted on this same issue today, and sent a shortened version of it to the DesNews.

I'm glad I came across your blog, and I'm glad we agree at least on this one thing. I'll check back when I have time to read more...
