The group, Citizens Against the Tax Increase, will host a forum next week on Richland County’s proposal to raise the sales tax for transportation improvements.
The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Southeast branch of the Richland County Public Library, 7421 Garners Ferry Road.
The group will explain its opposition to the proposal and outline its campaign.
Don Weaver, a co-chairman, said Richland County officials have been “very one-sided” and putting out “a lot of political spin but very little honest discussion” on the increase. He promised the group’s community meeting will allow a balanced debate.
