Transformation campaign addresses misconceptions
Thursday, January 26, 2012
Members of a sales tax campaign group are hoping to squash falsehoods in the community with just under two weeks left before election day.
At a weekly meeting Wednesday, members of the Transform Jefferson City campaign tried to address some public misconceptions associated with the proposed 10-year, half-cent economic development sales tax and the projects it would fund.
Transformation is the economic development strategic plan put forward by the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce. If passed Feb. 7, the sales tax would raise more than $41 million to complete a list of 30 projects around the city.
