TAMPA TAX BOOSTERS REMAINING LOW KEY OVER UPCOMING VOTE
Published August 7, 1996
Despite a September 3 vote, backers of a Hillsborough County half-cent sales tax increase to help fund a new Bucs stadium do not seem to be "working up much of a sweat," according to the TAMPA TRIBUNE. Community Investment Tax committee members have only recently opened a campaign HQs and, while they "might have a strategy," they "hedged" when asked what it is. Boosters have said they intend to "rely heavily" on direct mail appeals to voters instead of large rallies (Henderson & Koehn, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/7). ONE VOTE YES: It "appears likely" the Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce will announce its support for the sales tax increase. If the tax hike is approved, the Plant City government expects its share over 30 years to be close to $40M (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/5).
