Will Henrico County voters approve a meals tax to nourish the county’s schools, or will they choose to “starve the beast” of government?
In 2005, the county’s two East End districts voted in favor of a meals tax. Voters in the more affluent West End districts rejected it. The measure failed by 153 votes out of 23,912 ballots cast. Its goose was cooked in the Tuckahoe District, where it lost by 548 votes.
