Poll on Issue 39, the 8-mill renewal levy

This is the last unscientific poll we’re doing before Election Day. Naturally, we think it will be interesting to compare the results of our readers’ votes with the results on November 6. So far, 48 votes have been cast on our 10/18/07 Issue 27 poll below, with 31 voting against and 17 in favor. What do think? Should the 8-mill renewal levy be passed again? The cost to property owners is $74 per $100,000 of value. Below is the official ballot language as it appears on the Hamilton County Board of Elections website:

Issue 39
A majority affirmative vote is necessary for passage

A renewal of a tax for the benefit of the City of Norwood, County of Hamilton, Ohio, for the purpose of CURRENT OPERATING EXPENSES at a rate not exceeding eight (8) mills for each one dollar of valuation, commencing in 2007, first due in calendar year 2008.

Should Issue 39 be passed again?
