This post will begin a series in my blog dealing with the lack of rail in Tampa Bay. As some of you might already know, Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio has been pushing a 1 cent sales tax to fund the project and hopes to get it to a public vote by 2010. But there’s tons of opposition at this point, so you can expect this will have an uphill battle.
What do you think should be done to get light rail to Tampa? Should the city/county try to push a special tax to fund the rail system? Vote now in my latest poll, then post a comment about whether a tax should be implemented and if so, what kind of tax? Gas tax? Sales tax?
