Why did Rosenfeld vote to put excise tax increase on ballot?

Regarding the story, "County Council considers increase in real estate excise tax," July 7 Journal: County Councilman Howie Rosenfeld says that if such an issue was put on the ballot it would not pass. So the real question is, why would HE vote for it?
It seems the good voters of San Juan County approve darn near anything. The recent tax increase, even the stormwater deal, happened after a "no" vote. Also, these voter folk donate big time to anything worthwhile.
So again, if Mr. Rosenfeld knows no one will vote for this thing and he is their person, their "man," what's his excuse? Voters are bad people?
