    The Winn tax was defeated when other issues were on the ballot and voter turnout was greater than to be expected in this May 2 vote. That’s a ploy used by politicians to slip taxes in when voter turnout is normally low. Wake up voters and defeat this NEW tax.

    Jackson Parish,remember the two tax propositions are for 10 years. That’s $2,125,000 a year for both taxes. If both pass it will be 10 yrs before you can vote on them again,so be sure it’s what you want. Please get out and vote.
