Argument Against the Parcel Tax
Original post made by news hound on Oct 24, 2009
Here are some reasons why:
Developer fees provide more than enough money to finance road rehabilitation and drainage improvements.
The Police Department is overstaffed, overpaid and underworked. The Department's $4 million plus budget could be cut in half with no reduction in response times or public safety.
The Town administration is top heavy. Their compensation is far out of line with their ability, effort or scope of responsibility.
Fully 25 percent of the Parcel Tax is now being used to finance litigation against residents and current and former Town employees that should have been settled long ago.
I have heard the argument from one should vote for the parcel tax because it is tax deductible. This argument is a falacy.
Join me in voting no against Measures S and T. Just say no to public greed.
