Brown County voters overwhelmingly reject Ranger College referendum

BROWN COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Voters made their voices heard in a big way as they rejected a tax increase that would expand its campus in Brown County. 

FOR: 169 - 2.78%
AGAINST: 5,912 - 97.22%

If passed, the referendum would have funded its campuses in Early and Stephenville. To pay for it, residents would have paid 11 cents per $100 valuation. 

Those against the referendum said they didn't see the economic value in the expansion. Others were worried about the increased taxes. 

Supporters said it would have added more career opportunities for the local area. 

Should it have passed, Ranger College in Brown County would have been made part of the Ranger College District.
