Increase in Sales Tax

December 1, 2004

I would like to hear you and Chief Bratton state positively that any increase in sales tax will NOT go toward more bldgs, increased salaries for upper level officers, more hierarchy, etc.

So many of these increases of various sorts somehow do not get to the intended goal and, for sure, they never cease.

Supposedly the increase you desire will be rolled back in 7 years. That is surely a joke !! Has any increase ever been rolled back ??? Gov't. beauracrcy just snowballs in the city, the state and in the USA.

Prove that this increase will only go toward hiring more police and nothing else if you want my vote and that of many others.
