A nonpartisan “Give Us the Vote” rally has been planned for 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 7, in front of Lompoc City Hall. The rally, which will take place ahead of that night’s regular 6:30 p.m. meeting of the Lompoc City Council, is aimed at encouraging City Council members to place a 1-percent sales tax increase on a future ballot, a move that has been recommended by city staff as a way to generate revenue and balance the city’s budget.
