A) So I will chalk this one up to the $25,000 taxpayer funded NO NEW TAX campaign. I'm in the advertising business and if you keep telling your consumer over and over again -- whether the message is true or false they will believe you. And when your competition has zero dollars to get their message out... well you don't have to be smarter than a 5th grader to figure out who wins that battle. B) Or I will chalk this one up to the overwhelming love affair and trust Rochester Hills voters have with their elected officials. Council Members: Hooper, Rosen, Tisdel, Kochkenderfer, Webber, Klomp voted yes for the up to 3.7083 mills tax increase, Yalamanchi voted no -- so he must be totally clueless understanding the trust our residents have for our Mayor and Council. You decide A or B... let the Patch know post a comment. The proof will be in the pudding... page 215 -- projected 2013 RH budget has $4,749,610 general fund dollars dedicated for police which now our new tax will cover instead -- so were looking at almost five million bucks your trusted elected officials can't touch without raising taxes -- it will be fun to see how long that lasts.
