This is according to NewGuy over at the Republican Party blog:
"...Miller and Gable BOTH stated that they personally would not vote for a sales tax increase IF such a referendum were held - but, that given the possibility of heavy cuts from the states, some additional revenue sources might need to be considered, they decided to make arrangements for public input...."
"IF such a referendum were held"??? The two of them voted to hold the referendum, as did Commissioner David Blust (whom no one bothers to interview since he's just a bobblehead exactly mimicking the nearest adults).
The rewriting of recent history is off and running. Now the Republican county commissioners, rather than calling for a sales tax hike, are really just doing us all a favor by making "arrangements for public input." "Arrangements for public input." Never heard a tax referendum described so ... generously.
We guess the blow-back from the Tea Party got a little brisk.
