Standing in front of a display case filled with designer leather purses and near racks of gently used beaded gowns, the CEO of My Sister’s Closet and a former Maricopa County judge announced Friday they plan to challenge the constitutionality of Proposition 208, the education tax measure.

Ann Siner, CEO of My Sister’s Closet, and John Buttrick, a retired Maricopa County Superior Court judge and former Libertarian Party national committeeman, announced their plans to take the matter to court.

At a news conference at the Scottsdale Road location of Siner’s business, she said the education tax surcharge will harm her business if her challenge is not successful.

“Proposition 208 is the wrong way to fund education,” she said.
