REMINDER: Tuesday, April 24, is Election Day – have YOU voted yet?

On the special ballot is Proposition A, a 2% Utility Tax Increase for Police and Criminal Justice Services:

In order to fund additional police officers and criminal justice services in Kent, Proposition A would authorize the city to levy a 2% utility tax increase, from 6% to 8%, on the total gross revenues of companies providing electricity, manufactured and natural gas, telephone, and cable television services in the city. The additional revenue will establish police officer staffing levels consistent with comparable jurisdictions, and fund other criminal justice services impacted by additional officers.
