I have been a businessman in the city of Stanton for 3 1/2 years. I know that I speak for a lot of other small businesses in Stanton when I say that times have been tough. Recently, the city passed a 6% utility tax on residents and businesses alike. I know that Stanton is hurting financially, but so are we! I support the card club proposal. It will bring much needed revenue into the city. I hope the politicians will see fit to repeal the utility tax altogether if Measure A passes.
