Local 29 Palms insert: In our neck of the woods we have two treasonous property tax increases without a vote. We are one of most impoverished among San Bernardino County’s 24 municipalities. Local Councilmember JOHN COLE, DAN MINTZ and JOEL KLINK swindled citizens with unconscionable, repressive tax increases. These Republican RINOS have done much harm to the remote desert pueblo. KLINK is seeking his 16 consecutive year as councilman. KLINK does not represent taxpayers; he is a shrill for special interest. All three have kicked grandma and grandpa in the face. All three have harmed the disadvantaged. All three have harmed families. The city has a $33 million tainted bond debt. All three are unfit for public office. Opinions by 29 Palms resident branson hunter.

Here are HJTA’s tax recommendations:


By Jon Coupal, President Howard Jarvis Jarvis Tax Payers Association
October 31, 2016

After careful study of the 17 ballot measures, HJTA has concluded there are five that are important to California Taxpayers. Three measures would increase taxes or debt, while two will increase taxpayer protections.

Please vote your interests by using the following ballot guide and pass these recommendations on to your friends and contacts.

Prop. 51, School facilities bond: VOTE NO
This 9-billion-dollar bond would add to what Gov. Brown has described as California’s “Wall of Debt.” We can’t afford more debt, the repayment of which diverts money from other important programs.

Prop. 53, Stop Blank Checks: VOTE YES
Stop Blank Checks will close loopholes that allow politicians to commit to revenue bond debt without voter approval. No Blank Checks will ensure that California voters will have a say on all major state bond-funded projects over $2 billion.

Prop. 54, Legislature Transparency Act: VOTE YES
This measure would prohibit lawmakers from passing any bills until they are published on the Internet and in print for at least 72 hours before the vote occurs. No more “midnight lawmaking” where bills are passed without public review.

Prop. 55, Extension of Income taxes: VOTE NO

When voters approved an income tax increase in 2012, the politicians promised the increase would be temporary. Now, with Prop. 55, they want to extend the highest marginal income tax rates in all 50 states.

Prop. 56, Tobacco Tax Increase: VOTE NO
Another effort to funnel more money into efforts overseen by government entities and special interests that excel at squandering much of the taxpayer money they already receive.
“Only the knowledge that the people care will keep the politicians honest.” — Howard Jarvis
