I would not vote for a 1 percent "temporary" sales tax increase as the city's powers that be would use the windfall to go back to their old ways of overgenerous hiring, salaries, benefits and wasteful spending. There are already strong indications that as the state recovers financially, the extra money will be spent on extravagances that were supposed to be history.
The Modesto Bee has reported recently on some huge salary increases for state workers. Those in government do not learn lessons! Give someone in government a dollar, and they'll spend a dollar (or more) every time.
