Hensley’s tax revenue comment a gas5/13/2015
Some might wonder whether Des Moines City Councilwoman Christine Hensley might have taken Cityview’s April Fools edition of the Locker Room article by “Dive Riley” a bit too serious. Readers may recall the tongue in cheek article reported a golf tournament in Woodland cemetery to help fund council member pay raises. According to a WHO TV news report on May 4, on how to spend the new revenue from the gas tax increase, she (Councilwoman Hensley) “says she wants to make sure cemetery and Park and Rec projects are left out of the planning when it comes on how to spend that extra money.” Or perhaps only electric powered cars that don’t pay gas taxes are used in cemeteries.
