Lindsley says he thinks it's not an issue.
Lindsley: Our clients don't usually ask for that. This is the way we do it.
The survey was just about *additional* taxes. How much MORE ppl would be willing to pay for the library.
The library prefers property tax bc it's more stable. Sales tax is flat/below inflation here.
Lindsley: Not at all. Not. At. All. It's all about the messaging.
Lindsley: Our task was to see at what level ppl would support. We're saying there's a high chance it would pass, even at the high level.
