Fresno Voters Reject Road Tax

Fresno, California--home of the 3rd worst air in nation--rejects Measure C, a controversial 1/2 sales tax measure which would have been used primarily for road projects.

"Yes on C leaders pinned the blame on those pesky little signs, equating the measure with asthma and air pollution. Tax-extension opponents, said measure chairman Gordon Webster Jr., scared voters and caused them to vote no "for the wrong reasons." That comment shows how out of touch the Measure C crowd is. We need better roads, sure. But we also need to invest heavily in mass transportation. Our air matters. Our health matters. Quality of life is measured by more than Bulldogs tickets and an affordable mortgage."
