Why I voted ‘Yes’

I know there are people urging Olatheans to vote against the sales tax increase to improve roads. Although I think Olatheans, as well as Americans in general, are being taxed too much, I voted YES on this mail-in ballot for two simple reasons: 1. With a sales tax people from other communities throughout the county, people from other states who are here and spend money, help pay for the street improvements; and 2. If the sales tax issue does not pass, I believe the city council, at some point in the near future will raise the city’s mill levy to pay for the improvements thus putting the entire financial burden on Olatheans alone.
