Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell and county Elections Director Karen Osborne are the latest to suggest a ballot measure to overturn Glendale’s sales-tax hike should go forward.
The issue is closely watched because proceeds from the tax will help Glendale pay for a 20-year, $324 million lease agreement that could keep the Coyotes in Glendale.
The anti-sales tax group, known as Save Glendale Now, aims to put the city’s 0.7 percent sales-increase, and future hikes, on the November ballot.
