M06, should Melrose Park increase the sales tax? [MP]

On March 21, Melrose Park residents will vote on whether to increase the sales tax by one percent to 8.75%. Mayor Ron Serpico supports the tax increase and so does his allie running the Chamber of Commerce. Melrose Park Herald (John Huston) wrote about it, but seemed to have a hard time finding anyone to speak against the tax increase.

What's it mean when it's hard to find a source to speak against a tax increase proposal? Maybe Melrose Park residents love their government so much no one wants to speak against it. Maybe not, too.
