Mesa is gearing up for a stacked November ballot with eight local questions totaling more than a half of a billion dollars in school and municipal asks.
The hefty amount raises some speculation over voter fatigue, with the possibility that conservative Mesa voters could tick “no” the entire way down their ballot.
But that may not be an issue if March 2004 is any indicator. Then, voters approved 15 municipal ballot requests including $330 million in bonds and a bed tax increase.
City and school leaders including the mayor, councilman and school board president say it’s up to them to educate voters before they hit the polls.
