I am in agreement with a no vote on Measure S and any other measure to grab yet more of our hard-earned dollars.
We’ve all had to rework our budgets and live within our means during these tough economic times; why can’t everyone else? Why is it they always seem to take the easy route of yet another tax on you and me instead going back to the table and making some tough, hard decisions?
This voter has had enough of the cleverly written documentation using everything from pictures to scare tactics to stating the tax will only last a few short years before we have the option of voting again to renew the tax.
Do they really think the American voter and taxpayer is that gullible? Once there’s a tax on the books, it’s there to stay in one form or another. Have you taken a look at your property taxes lately? If not, take a good, long look. The American taxpayer is picking up the tab for a down economy in addition to those that just can’t seem to effectively budget.
This voter will continue to vote no on any new or increased taxes.
