Atherton survey - A wolf in sheep's clothing and badgering the witness
Original post made by Peter Carpenter on Jun 8, 2013
Surprise - the survey wants to know if you will support an extension of the parcel tax and the questions about the quality of Town services are all designed to encourage you to say YES.
Next surprise - if you state that you would not vote for an extension of the property tax then the survey instrument asks you 3 more times do you really mean NO and do you really understand that the parcel tax is essential to maintaining the quality of life in Atherton.
Last surprise - our two person household received two such participation letters which raises questions about how random was the selection process.
