The General Penny: Get EducatedThe Town of Jackson has created a website about the General Penny to educate voters before they are asked to check yes or no about it in November 3’s election. Jackson’s Town Council is unanimous in its support for putting this question before voters. Why? What can the General Penny do for our community?
What community needs could the General Penny help support?
If passed, the first collection of the General Penny would be in the spring of 2021. It would remain in place for four years providing millions of dollars of resources to our community to meet current and future needs. The money raised by the General Penny is not limited to any particular use. The funds
can be used to support many different community needs. The Town is in the process of creating a committee with nonprofit, business, and other leaders to provide perspective on budgeting, including how to use General Penny monies if voters approve it.
The General Penny could provide a lot. Learn more at www.generalpenny.com.
