Sun Herald editorial: Tourism tax deserves your vote June 23

Jackson County voters will have the opportunity June 23 to give their blessings to an excellent idea.

A 2-percent tax on hotel and motel bills will be on the ballot and that is the best way for the county to pay its share of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The up to $700,000 it would raise each year would be put to good use — promoting the entire Coast.
