Election Letter: Convention center: No

October 28, 2013 

No on taxes for convention center expansion. We don't need more taxes for the convention center. I believe 80 percent of the people who are taxed don't have anything to do with the center. The older people who are on fixed incomes are getting taxed too much. Three Rivers' staff stated they would have brought additional millions to the Tri-Cities if the center was bigger. They should get a loan then to build the expansion. The center can pay it off by holding more events. So make the millions and pay it off.
