Edwards Stands By Opposition to Tax and Fee Increases to Fund Infrastructure


Springfield alderman Frank Edwards is standing by his insistence that Springfield needs to cut a lot more before it gives any thought to raising sales taxes to pay for infrastructure.

 

Appearing live Monday with 970 WMAY’s Greg Bishop, Edwards notes that Bloomington has one of the lowest sales tax rates in the state… and also has the lowest unemployment rate.

 

He says the city should look there as an example of a way to reprioritize spending, instead of just constantly asking taxpayers for more.
