Three Omaha mayoral candidates say they're eager to use a potential burst of city sales tax revenue to eliminate the controversial restaurant tax and to lower local property and sales tax rates.
City Councilwoman Jean Stothert, former Councilman Dan Welch and State Sen. Brad Ashford each said Tuesday that Gov. Dave Heineman's proposal to overhaul state tax policy could result in payback for taxpayers.
