KEEP CLEVELAND STRONG – SIN NO MORE -- VOTE NO ON SIN TAX

 

 

THE SIN TAX IS LISTED AS ISSUE 7 ON THE BALLOT.

THE SIN TAX IS A TAX INCREASE.

ELECTION IN CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OHIO IS ON MAY 6, 2014.

The ‘Sin Tax’ will benefit the billionaire owners of
First Energy Stadium (Browns), Progressive Field (Indians), and Quicken Loans Arena (Cavaliers) in Cleveland.

NO TO CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OHIO’S EXTENSION OF THE ‘SIN TAX’ FOR ANOTHER 20-YEARS

This is the third request for a ‘sin tax’. Cuyahoga County voters did approve the previous two requests.

The first ‘sin tax’ (approved in May 1990) provided partial financing for the Gateway Sports and Entertainment Complex which includes Progressive Field (Indians) and Quicken Loans Arena (Cavaliers) in Cleveland.

The second ‘sin tax’ (an extension of the first was approved in November 1995) provided funds for the construction of the Browns Stadium now known as First Energy Stadium.

From August 1990 through October 2013, the ‘sin tax’ generated over $350 million for use in construction and maintenance of the three sports facilities.

The current ‘sin tax’ is due to expire in July 2015. The extension is expected to generate $260 million in 20 years.
