Commissioners stadium tax vote gives challengers political ammunition
The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners will vote Tuesday to levy a county-wide sales tax to help pay for construction of a new Minnesota Twins stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The county was granted permission by the Legislature to pass the tax increase without putting it to a vote by taxpayers. Four of the seven commissioners say they'll vote for the tax. Three of those four commissioners are up for re-election this fall, and their opponents say, the stadium tax vote is a hot issue.
