Many Americans are troubled by the lack of civility we see too often in politics today. We know that to solve the problems facing Arizona and the Nation, we must find a way to work together collaboratively and respectfully.

In response, Project Civil Discourse is partnering with the leaders of our state's political parties and over 20 organizations throughout Arizona to host a civil and respectful town hall about the implications of Prop. 100, the sales tax referendum, which is up for public vote on May 18th.

Arizona's Sales Tax Referendum Town Hall: A Demonstration of Civil Dialogue and Discussion will open with an objective, non-partisan explanation from Peter Burns about the state budget and how the outcome of the sales tax vote will affect Arizona. Participants will then join in roundtable discussions to share ideas, and learn from one another about this important issue facing our state. A report of the event will be widely distributed.

Pre-Registration is Required as Space is Limited.

I'm pretty sure we have enough "collaborators".

What Arizona really should do is totally get rid of state income and sales taxes. The state should get all of its revenue from the same 2 kinds of places the federal government is supposed to. These 2 places are:

1. Commerce into and out of the state... products and services crossing the state borders.

2. Inter-county commerce.

None of this should include little Mom and Pop businesses where the property bought or sold in business is carried across state or county lines as personal property. It should only include big business where the property is not moved by the owner personally.

Implement the above and what the state grow.
