I humbly request that Sheriff Stone withdraw his department’s proposed permanent sales tax that is set to be voted on this month.

Voting is essentially the sole mechanism available to citizens for keeping its government in check. Having to come to the public for a tax renewal every so often builds in accountability for government offices and officials.

And, while I believe Stone and his department to be above reproach, who’s to say what the situation may look like in 25, 50 or 100 years?

So, I ask that Stone reconsider the “in perpetuity” portion of his tax proposal.
