The People Spoke: Searcy A&P Tax Rejected.

While the debate will rage on, the election on the Searcy A&P Tax is over.

Results of the Searcy A&P Tax election are as follows:

  • 1,574 Against
  • 1,331 For

FOX-16 was in town to cover the events.  See their coverage here.

Also, Harding’s “The Link” covered the picketing at City Hall and the voting.

There is much to be said about the events of the last 15 months.  But we will withhold analysis until the dust settles.

What is important to remember from today is that The People spoke.

Regardless of the outcome, The People won because their rights were restored and their judgment prevailed.  The People would have won if the tax and they win now that the tax failed.  Their wishes are what the Searcy Friends of the Voters and others fought to defend.  City Hall did everything within their power (and even outside their authority) to keep the voters from being heard, but ultimately, the people prevailed.

The People win because The People were heard.

Many thanks to all of the freedom-lovers who fought hard for The People’s right to vote on this issue.
