Most residents don't care about taxes
October 10, 2019
The voters in Santa Rosa County (I actually thought about putting residents instead of voters of Santa Rosa County until I realized that the majority of residents don't care), along with the voters in Jay sent a powerful message Tuesday by not only saying 'No' to a new 1-cent sales tax but a big 'Hell' no with 67 percent of those who voted casting a no vote. A whopping 18.83 percent of the registered voters in Santa Rosa County went to the polls.
In Jay, the percentage was higher with 75 percent of the people voting no. Jay voters voted 74 for the tax and 217 against.
To the best of my know...
