Nadine’s, 1931 S 12th, Soulard, on the patio
Sponsored by Marie Ceselski, 7th Ward Democratic Committeewoman
This meeting is for elected officials, activists, and business owners who oppose increased sales taxes, in particular the proposed sales tax increase for public safety and increased sales tax for St. Louis Zoo.
Very pleased to already have commitments to participate in this meeting by City Treasurer Tishaura Jones and DNC Committeewoman and 15th Ward Alderwoman Megan Green.
This meeting is a social-meeting to get to know one another and chart a course of opposition to sales tax hikes.
This is not a campaign committee. That comes later.
This is also a meeting to gauge interest in forming a working group to research and publish examples of new revenue sources to be considered, adjustments/cost savings ideas to the City’s budget, and new grant money opportunities.
It’s not just about stopping regressive sales taxes. It’s about finding alternatives to regressive sales taxes.
I will pick up the tab on tea and coffee for everyone but food and liquor are on your own.
