Campaign committee formed to support Prescott ballot measure
PRESCOTT, Arizona: A campaign committee, called Vote YES for Streets, has been established to support a three-quarters of a cent sales tax extension that will be on the September 1st primary election ballot. The committee will hold four open houses, all beginning at 6 p.m., to allow interested citizens to learn more about the ballot measure.
Represented on the committee are representatives from the Yavapai County Contractors Association and the Citizens Tax Committee. Committee co-chairman Jason Gisi added a statement emphasizing voters' knowledge of the measure:
“Passage of this ballot proposition will go a long way toward improving the transportation network of streets and roads in Prescott,” according to committee chairman Jason Gisi. He added, “voters need to understand that the proposed three-quarters of a cent sales tax won’t actually become effective until 2016, and represents a decrease from the current 1% sales tax that continues through 2015."
