While waiting for results of the Proposition 204 vote, the Superintendent of Littleton Elementary School District in western Maricopa County says he’s trying to stay hopeful.
The proposition, which would enact a permanent 1-cent-per-dollar sales tax to fund education, transportation projects and human services, was failing almost 3 to one as the first precincts reported.
Roger S. Freeman, speaking from the “Yes on 204″ campaign party, said negative ads released by the opposing campaign had a big influence on the election.
“We’re always hopeful,” he said. “When you don’t have money, you have to bank on hope.”
