Fairer Taxation Structure

In order to fund Greenlight Pinellas, we need to approve elimination of the current property tax used to fund PSTA and replace it with a 1% increase in the county sales tax. This fair tax approach reduces the burden of property taxes on many Pinellas County residents while offering a fair, consumption based approach that includes all consumers in Pinellas County, including tourists.
