Salinas’ Sales Tax

On June 24th, the council approved a ballot measure proposing one cent sales tax. While I’m a big believer in making Salinas an economically attractive place for potential business, I’m also aware that Salinas’ image poses an even greater barrier to attracting economic and personal vibrancy. At the meeting I made sure to voice my opinion about these issues. Above you can hear a few of my comments pertaining to the proposed tax and why I’m wholeheartedly for it.
