In today’s article published by the Scottsdale Republic, Arizona residents are prompted to be decision makers. Do you have an opinion on Proposition 100? Then don’t forget to vote tomorrow.
Proposition 100 is an Arizona Sales Tax Increase on the May 18 special election ballot. It is a temporary, three year increase in the Arizona sales tax from 5.6 to 6.6 cents. Two-thirds of the money is reserved for education and one-third is reserved for health care and public safety.

Whether you support or oppose Proposition 100, get out and vote. You need to be a decision maker!

I think there seemed to be quite a bit of coverage at first stating that Prop 100 has the support it needs to pass. Heard a report yesterday, however, stating that the number of people that oppose it are higher than initially thought.
My advice is to not just assume that Prop 100 will do what the news folks are reporting it will do, make sure you do your research! The only way to make absolutely sure is to get out and vote on it!
As always, the best way to have an opinion is to make it count at the poles. Standing around the water cooler complaining never gets you very far!
I agree with Rachel “Make your Vote Count”!
What kind of economy do we want in Arizona? Do we want an economy that appeals to companies primarily because we can provide cheap labor or do we want highly skilled jobs requiring college degrees and graduate school? Companies that hire educated, highly paid workers are looking for communities with strong school systems, support for the arts and plentiful opportunities for recreation. While prop.100 won’t solve our budget crisis, it’s a step to plug up part of the gap in the short term while our government officials try to figure out a longer term solution. Vote “YES” on prop. 100.
