what makes me laugh is that it won easily, yet everyone was shocked when sales tax went up to 8.1% on jan first! i actually had someone come through my line the other day that still didn't know about the increase!

Sweet!
Now we can move on to my second dumb question.

What was the vote about? I would guess funding but what exactly? I didn't see anything.

our bus system is ... okay, it definately needs more funding, it seems like the first thing to be cut, and with soo many people using it to commute to portland, it becomes more and more necessary... beyond the gas prices and such.
i'm actually not sure EXACTLY what the vote was on, i believe it was like a small tax increase to fund ctran.

i hate taxes, but i love public transportation

I know what you mean, its exactly like:

I don't like to bath but I don't want to smell, sometimes it's just something you've gotta do.

OK so maybe that wasn't the best thing to say.



Thanks for your time in explaniations.

it thankfully got passed, which increased our local sales tax to 8.1%. so many people were outraged, although they voted FOR it. doy. some people.

and what's funny, too, is that now that there's more funding, they're being shoved out of their downtown bus depot, which is where everyone hops the bus to portland. i totally understand, for the most part, because the bus depot being there has totally ruined the neighborhood. all the transients that hang out around there don't necessarily take the bus, and if the depot weren't there, it would give them extra excuse to kick everyone out that's been loitering, thusly making it a not as bad neighborhod.
