Journal Sentinel: Vote Yes on Property Tax Relief Referendum

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has endorsed the property tax relief referendum.

Two important lines:

We recommend a “yes” vote on the Milwaukee County advisory referendum to raise the local sales tax a penny on the dollar to fund transit and parks and to provide some property tax relief.

With a “yes” vote, residents can send the message that community deterioration — which ailing transit and suffering parks fuel — isn’t an option.

Please visit the Quality of Life Alliance web site if you still have questions or need more information on the measure.
