Rep. Ross Hunter, D-Medina, is the second legislator to jump into the race. Sen. Fred Jarrett is there, too.

As Finance Committee chairman, Hunter worked on a lot of bills to help local governments with their budget problems, that is, trying to give them the means to pay for public services. Those are called “taxes.” The locals got some flexibility, but only transit actually got any new taxing authority.

Let me double check that when I get back to work.
