“Don’t think of a time-limited, voter-approved increase as a burden. We should use this as an opportunity to come together as One Collier, united behind one plan to improve infrastructure, enhance public safety and expand our workforce for the long-term success of our community.”

J. Dudley Goodlette, chairman of One Collier and a former Florida state representative

“I’m very supportive of the sales tax because I think it’s a wise economic decision that the citizens of Collier County have an opportunity to reduce their personal tax burden and pass that along to visitors.”

Ed Morton, Board Member, Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce

“As I’ve come to learn more about the One Collier initiative, I’ve come to realize this is a smart, economic decision for the future of Collier County. There is a very specific list of projects and initiatives that guides how the One Collier money will be used. It’s not a wish list, it is a must do list for our community. And we have a choice of how to pay for that work. We can borrow money, which will add up to millions of dollars of interest over time. We can raise property taxes. Or one penny at a time, we can come together as one community that involves residents, the visitors who enjoy our area and raise $490 million that will transform Collier County.”

Jennifer Trammell, Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce Public Policy Committee member

“I support the local option sales surtax because, as a native Neapolitan, I feel strongly about this investment in our community. I feel that this is giving us the opportunity to act on a variety of issues that impact Collier not just here-and-now, but the kind of Collier we want to leave for future generations.”

Davina Hartsfield, Lifelong Collier County resident
