May is almost here, which means that, if you live within Spokane Transit Authority’s Public Transportation Benefit Area, you will soon be voting on a reauthorization of the three-tenths of one percent sales tax that voters approved in 2004.

Do you plan to vote for or against it? Does the fact that the measure no longer includes a sunset clause bother you? Are you willing to risk service cuts and vote ‘no’ on it?
