Half-cent Ozaukee tax becomes unlikely issue in Assembly contest marked by accusations of dirty politics, sketchy facts

    Ozaukee County’s half-cent sales tax hasn’t been an issue for more than a decade, but Jean Opitz, a candidate for the 60th District Assembly seat from the Town of Belgium, is making it one heading into the Tuesday, Aug. 12, Republican primary election in a controversial campaign mailer criticizing her opponent Rob Brooks.
    And Brooks, a county supervisor from Saukville, is fighting back.

    “Either she’s completely ignorant of the facts or she’s just a liar,” Brooks said in response to Opitz’s campaign literature, which paints him as a “tax and spend” politician. “It’s just morally wrong to throw that garbage out there. It represents everything that is wrong with politics.”
