Candidates offer guarded support for innkeeper’s tax

Two candidates for county council currently are not in favor of a local innkeeper’s tax but could be swayed to a yes vote with a more detailed plan and support from residents.

County council member Beth Boyce is running for re-election to the board’s District 3 seat and is being challenged in the Republican primary by Brian Moore. No Democrat has signed up to run for the seat, but a candidate could be slated after the primary. The district represents a large section of Pleasant Township, including part of the city of Greenwood.

Boyce joined the council in 2008 and was elected to a full term in 2010. She previously worked for U.S. Rep. Steve Buyer and currently is a stay-at-home mother. Moore ran unsuccessfully for the Greenwood City Council and an at-large seat on the county council. He works for Luca Pizza in Greenwood Park Mall.
