Harris talks about proposed tax on radio

By
From page A4 | July 05, 2012 |

The Davis Board of Education eventually chose a smaller number, but for several weeks, board member Richard Harris galvanized many people in Davis with his proposal to place a parcel tax of up to $642 per year on the local ballot this November.

That’s twice as large, or larger, than any schools tax previously approved in Davis, including the one voters endorsed this spring.

The board opted instead for a tax measure of up to $446. But the factors that drove Harris to suggest the higher figure still apply, and on the current “Davisville” he explains how he came up with $642; what it would have paid for; why he proposed it; and how he thinks it could have passed.

He’s not seeking another term on the board, and the interview concludes with his advice to whoever succeeds him.

“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, airs on KDRT, 95.7 FM, at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays, 7:30 a.m. and midnight Saturdays and midnight Sundays.

The interview with Harris debuted Monday, and will be broadcast through July 15. It is also available in the KDRT archives at http://kdrt.org/node/9747.
