“As Mayor of Gilbert and an advocate for Gilbert Education, I am voting ‘YES’ on our local override, which supports our families and businesses,” said Mayor Lewis. “The override continues the same funding level that our School District has been operating for ten years without an increase. However, Proposition 204 permanently raises taxes and is structured poorly, which does not help our families and businesses. I am voting ‘NO’ on 204."
The Arizona Republic, The Arizona League of Cities and Towns, 11 Chambers of Commerce, 14 professional business associations, and 44 Mayors and local City Councilmembers have all come out in opposition to Prop 204. To see a complete list, click here.
“I greatly appreciate the leadership Mayor Lewis has brought to the East Valley,” added Doug Ducey, the Chairman for No New Taxes, No on 204. “Prop 204 includes hundreds of millions of dollars in special interest earmarks and cuts out tax revenue sharing with local municipalities. Arizona deserves real education reforms that Prop 204 just won’t deliver.”
