Kyushu Mayors Split on Stimulus Payment

The Nishinippon Shimbun conducted a survey questionnaire of Kyushu’s 106 mayors asking for their opinions of the government’s proposed payment to citizens as an economic stimulus measure. Of those responding, 34% said they approved while 17% said they were opposed. Those mayors in the remaining categories (don’t know, others) thought it wouldn’t have any effect, or that the money would be better spent on other government programs. When added to the 17% opposed, those with an overall negative attitude accounted for 36%, roughly balancing out those in favor.
