$1.5 Billion more in Debt

Mayor Curry's Referendum 1 initiative will saddle Jacksonville with an additional $1.5 billion in debt (source).

If Mayor Curry is willing to trade fiscal responsibility for his fear of being known as the mayor who raised our taxes; I’ll somewhat oblige his game of Bill Clinton-esque wordplay. Shall we have a referendum defining “new tax” before we Vote No on Referendum 1?

I won’t oblige; however, from calling him the mayor who plunged Jacksonville into an unaffordable debt scheme.
