Exeter City Council votes unanimously to put their proposed one-cent sales tax on this year’s November ballot
“… And almost all of the metrics from FM3 Research’s survey, the company tasked with taking Exeter residents’ temperature of a sales tax measure, points to two-thirds favorability. …
… “There’s no panacea…not everyone is going to be on board and say yeah they support this 100%…But what this is telling me, in spite of hearing critical statements that you’re still at 69% total yes…most cities would kill for these numbers,” Richard Bernard from FM3 Research said.
Bernard added that the survey’s results indicate that the city council has a strong pulse on the community’s needs. …”
