Salt Lake County Residents Pay the Highest Sale Tax that goes toward Sexy Trax Lines, FrontRunner and StreetCar. Salt Lake County Residents still Pay $10.00 Vehicle Registration Fee for the Airport Trax Line. The Sale Tax Increase will Pay for 30% Increase in Service the of the Sale Tax Increase will go towards Projects not Service. I am Voting NO on the Sale Tax Increase because UTA is not Restoring all Bus Routes before August 2007.
In November 2006 Voters Voted for a Sale Tax Increase for UTA, then in August 2007 UTA started the Destruction of the Bus System. Just so UTA could Build a Empire of Sexy Trax Lines, FrontRunner and StreetCar. So UTA Executives could Earn Excessive Salaries and Bonuses at Taxpayers Expense. While at the same time Increasing Poverty and Crime.
Taxpayers are Paying 75% of Paratransit Fares. The Disabled and Elderly can’t afford $4.00 each way, Taxpayers are Paying $4.60 each way. A Good Bus System would Reduce the Cost and Need for Paratransit.
BIG BONUSES are Coming for UTA EXECUTIVES if the SALE TAX INCREASE PASSES. The CORRUPTION CONTINUES, “Just FOLLOW the $$MONEY$$”.
