Duval Referendum Makes Seven Straight Victories

Against all odds, Duval County Public Schools passed a 1 mill tax to increase compensation for teachers and staff on Aug 23, 2022. It was the seventh straight victory in the past six years aided by the consulting services of Voss & Associates. Given the fact that Duval just passed a half-penny sales tax for facilities in 2020, the skeptics claimed the millage increase would never pass. But it did, with 53% voter approval. Voss & Associates has helped Manatee, Hernando and Hillsborugh schools pass several voter-approved initiatives as well since 2016.  Read about all seven victories on the Case Studies page.
