Gov. Brown should use his poll numbers to craft better tax system
Don’t blow it, Governor. California is more pleased than ever with Gov. Jerry Brown’s performance, according to a statewide poll this week. Once-wary voters might even stomach continuing a higher sales tax, the poll found. Meanwhile, revenues are pouring in, with more money in the future.
It’s political nirvana, a moment to savor for any state leader. But this high point invites a question: Will Brown use this moment to create a genuine legacy that will serve California?
