It’s not a hard decision for a thinking person: Vote “yes” and the guest tax goes in the pockets of the Ambassador Hotel developers. Vote “no” and the guest tax goes to increase tourism and improve Century II.

Let’s be fair. If women are deprived of contraceptives, men should be deprived of that blue pill and others like it.
If you can’t park between the stripes in public parking lots, maybe you shouldn’t be driving.
