Re: “The Man Behind Richmond's Renaissance

Actually sales tax receipts were up 12% in CQ1 2011 vs. CQ1 of 2010 for Richmond, and tax receipts are projected to continue to accelerate. The proposed tax increase represented as measures C & D on the June ballot was pushed by West Contra Costa Unified School District and the teacher's union. If passed, it will make Richmond's sales tax rates one of the highest in the State.
Meanwhile, an additional $3B will be going to schools now that the state of CA has figured out that their income and sales tax receipts have gone up by $6.6B
I don't support measures C&D, but do support the great job that Bill Lindsay and Chief Magnus have been doing. We have seen a lot of very positive changes in Richmond in the last several years.
