Evidently, the story about Pierce County misprinting the amount of the proposed tax to pay for South Sound 911 was important enough to put on the front page of the printed paper. This should be on every billboard in Pierce County.
Doug Vanscoy says, “It’s not materially misleading to the voters.” Yes, it is. Even if the language specifies that the proposed tax is “one-tenth of one percent,” anyone with the slightest amount of sophistication knows that the misprint of 0.01 will confuse and/or mislead plenty of voters.
Thanks for the “‘voter advisory.’” Go figure. If you can’t win an argument based on the merits, make a “mistake.”
