Clean sweep for sales tax proponents

Local option sales taxes were extended or renewed in four North Georgia counties in yesterday’s election. Majorities of over 80 percent supported 1-percent sales taxes for education in Dawson and White County. Over 60 percent of voters supported penny sales taxes for public safety and infrastructure improvements in Hall and Whitfield County. A bond proposal in the City of Atlanta also passed with 88 percent voting yes.
