AFP-Ohio Applauds RTA for Opposing Tax Hike

Aug 7, 2018 by AFP

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Americans for Prosperity-Ohio (AFP-OH) applauded the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) for not considering a tax-hike ballot referendum Tuesday. After months of discussion, the board opted against bringing up a $60 million sales tax hike for a vote. The Countering Additional Taxes and Spending (C.A.T.S.) group led the community-driven effort to oppose this tax increase.

AFP-OH Field Director Mark Seme released the following statement:

“We’re glad to see the RTA vote down this ill-advised tax hike. Instead of sinking more taxpayer money into an aging system, board members must look to modernize the system and find more efficient ways to serve their customers. The C.A.T.S. group was the key in defeating this tax increase—they are an exceptional example of how residents can work together towards guiding good community governance and we will continue to support them.”
