The Search for Opposition

Ruffin Prevost, WY Bureau reporter for the Billings Gazette is looking for people against the Cap. Tax. Many a word has been said and printed in favor of the 1% special sales tax (not to mention their own WP.com blog), but the anti-tax voice has either felt left out or just not found it’s niche into the arena. So, if you want to promote the vote no side of the debate, there is an opportunity to chat with the reporter who has the Basin Beat Blues. Also, for the Vote No campaign leaders, WordPress.com is free and easy to use. Start up a competing blog via WordPress and get your message out.

While we’re on the subject of the cap tax debate, I’ll go ahead and open this post for a decent open debate on the cap tax. Whether you be in favor of or opposed, speak your piece right here about why we should vote for or against the tax.

Because a) I like to do things cheaply and b) the cap tax committee was initially interested in having a blog (though that ended up not happening), I set up the site using WordPress.com. A look at the statistics for the site (the address of which was run regularly in the Cody Enterprise and was on all the propaganda publicity for the campaign) is a good way of getting a sense of what it’s like to live in a culture that is not as saturated by the internet as many places. The site had 2588 total views, with 234 views on its best day ever, and it had one incoming link. Park County has a total population of 26,664. I know that in many places, it’s crucial to do outreach on the internet and to find library users, or potential users, where they are. I’m glad we put the site up, but there was far more discussion of the cap tax on the op-ed pages of our local newspapers than there was online. Right after Election Day, I went on a short vacation to Moab, Utah and environs. There are pictures on Flickr, which I may someday arrange into a set, but don’t hold your breath. […]
