Dennis McCaslin started this petition to Concerned Citizens Against New Taxes

The proposed museum in Fort Smith to honor members of the US Marshal Sevice is a noble and well-deserved concept, however, those that have turned the project into a cottage industry and a fulcrum to manipulate property taxes for the benefit of a few said from the beginning that the citizens would not be taxed for this "non-profit" entity.

Those same real estate owners and developers have now used their influence on the local Fort Smith Board of Directors to force an unethical, last minute "special election" in an effort to tax the citizens for $17 million. And it's not just the citizens of Fort Smith...every man woman and child that spends money in Fort Smith will be taxed at the higher rate.

Concerned Citizens Against New Taxes is asking EVERYONE to sign this petition declaring if this bogus bailout comes to fruition to PLEDGE to no longer shop, patronize restaurants or do any retail business with merchants in Fort Smith unless they declare their opposition to this boondoggle of a tax publicly BEFORE March 12.

You can purchase everything you basically need within a ten-minute drive in either direction from the site of the proposed museum. Van Buren, Alma, Sallisaw, Poteau, Greenwood and other small tons would love an influx of new customers to their businesses.

Please sign this petition to deliver a symbolic message to those that back this regressive tax that will hurt low-income families the most.
