Gov. Steve Beshear won Franklin County in last year’s election 13,878 to 5,022 over former Gov. Ernie Fletcher. He did so campaigning against tax increases, a stance he has since changed.
So it was significant last night when Franklin County’s School Board reversed course and unanimously voted to back down from a 4.7 cent property tax increase rather than face certain voter wrath.
Does anyone know if Franklin County voters understand that cigarette tax increases, Beshear’s next move, help fund terrorism?
