For a forum that was suppsoed to be about what people wanted to see in the Vision2 package to have nearly a third of the speakrs voice oposisiton to the proposal entereily was fairly impressive.
I was one of the speakers in opposition to Vision2. Generally, although not always, I'm opposed to county wide sales taxes. Local municipalities like Tulsa are largely restricted in the manner in which they fund themselves. Sale taxes are their life blood. Every tenth of a cent that the county levees represents a loss of flexibility for a city in that county.
More specifically, I don't support extending a tax 4 years before it expires and I don't support the short amount of time we have to evaluate, debate, and discuss this issue before voters are asked to vote on it. I don't like the "We have to do something now" mentality. If something is a good idea now, it will be a good idea later after sober thought and debate.
I would be more amenable to putting this off for a couple of years and to then bring this back as a possible city tax with a shorter length, and a smaller scope.
Michael Bates has done quite a bit of analysis on Vision2 over on his blog batesline.com
Below are some pictures I took at the Friday night Vision2 meeting.
