The big tax message in the sky



Istock_000003808280xsmall Coming soon to billboard near you: A message of support for the property tax cut plan on the Jan. 29 ballot. The Florida Outdoor Advertising Association said today it will donate space across Florida for the "Vote Yes on 1" campaign.

Add to that the fliers hitting mailboxes this week,the robo-calls from Gov. Charlie Crist and expected TV spots, and the pro-amendment forces are waging a formidable campaign.

News release:

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Outdoor Advertising Association has been proud to facilitate the involvement of member companies making in-kind donations of advertising space to the “Yes on 1 Florida ” campaign.

The FOAA supports this amendment because of its potential benefit to the state economy and Florida homeowners. Amendment 1’s passage is an important priority of Gov. Charlie Crist, who has won the support of the association  with his strong conservative values and belief in less government interference and more freedom.

“We appreciate Governor Crist’s leadership on issues that improve the state economy and the lives of Floridians, and we’re proud to help pass Amendment 1,” said Charlotte Brand-Audie, president of FOAA.   “Amendment 1 is an important step toward resolving the property tax issues that affect everyone who owns property in Florida , residents and businesses alike.”
