Hospital: Voters would approve tax increase
Morgan Hill Times

Some voters said they’re supportive of a sales tax increase to benefit Saint Louise Regional Hospital, according to a recent phone survey the private hospital commissioned; however – the tax is more attractive if it were paired with funding education, fire services, police officers or services for the elderly. After surveying about 500 registered voters in Gilroy by phone in the last weeks of December 2011, “results indicate support for a sales tax increase among likely November 2012 voters,” wrote Saint Louise spokeswoman Jasmine Nguyen via email Wednesday.
