Life is good in the vocal minority

So my favorite issue for Orem politics, the CARE tax, passed on Tuesday. It is interesting to note that 88,619 residents of Orem will have to pay a tax to support recreation and the arts because 5,016 people, or just over 10% of the registered voters, voted for it. Fortunately, the opposition was not succesful in mobilizing its base.

I voted for this tax, and I am a huge supporter of the theater and arts program in Orem. I volunteered for the SCERA as a teenager, and I think a tax like this will help out a lot more than the community understands.
