Peter Chan thanked all of the people who supported him. He has four more years to serve the city. He and Hans Liang will move the city forward. If it is good for the city, it is good for us. Our expenses are up so we will have to increase the city’s revenue for the next four years. Raising sales taxes are not a good idea and we don’t want to reduce city services. The Market Place and one or more of the hotels will be opened for business in 2018 so the additional sales taxes will help us pay for the city services.
