Open Government and Taxes

Atlanta recently thumbs downed a proposal to increase taxes to fund much needed transportation improvements. Although the tax hike would have been 1% and would have in theory created an economic boom in the area, the residents responded resoundingly that they don’t trust their government and wont give the government any more money. So are states and local governments that are engaging in open government programs experiencing better success at obtaining funds from tax payers? Is it really distrust or are people just tired of being taxed or both?
