Hey Branson, "Aren't you glad we're not Springfield"

Marc Williams question, "Aren't you glad we're not Springfield", never resonated with Branson voters.
The statement refers to the dire fiscal circumstances our big sister to the north faces. Springfield residents will have to face the reality that a tax increase appears inevitable.
Williams attributes Springfield's economic problems to poor planning and a failure to implement strong growth policies.
The end result, Sprinfield MO., will have to raise taxes.
