Measure 26-218: Metro payroll tax for transit


Metro wants to impose a 0.75 percent payroll tax to pay for transit expansion and sidewalks.

Hey, Metro, come back in a couple of years when local businesses aren’t slammed by a pandemic-induced recession. Come back when you have a clearer plan for how you’ll actually spend the money. Come back when you don’t exempt government workers from getting hit by this. Come back when you have better accountability.

Most important, come back when you’ve made transit less stabby and people actually want to ride it.

Vote no.
