Jason Corley Comes Out Against Expo Center
Republican candidate for Precinct 2 in the Lubbock County Commissioners race, Jason Corley has officially come out against Proposition A. Proposition A is the venue tax election on the November ballot that would pay for the proposed Lubbock County Expo Center.
In a video posted on his campaign Facebook page, Corley asks citizens to vote against the project while questioning the funding behind the project. Corley claims that it isn't true that money raised from the Hotel Occupancy Tax and Rental Car Tax would be enough to pay for a $50 million dollar bond. Corley claims that if not enough money is raised to pay yearly for the Expo Center, property taxes could go up.
You can watch Corley's full video here.
The question of funding is also relevant after a report that rental car taxes increases after October 5th may no longer be able to be used for project away from airports. You can see that story here.
Corley will appear on The Chad Hasty Show on Friday at 9:35am to discuss his opposition to the Lubbock County Expo Center that is on the ballot. Early voting for the November 6 election begins Monday.
