NO ON MEASURE “O school tax, yes on a half-cent sales tax initiative in 2020 election.

Measure O is not a Bond, this is a deliberate misrepresentation to call it a Bond; it is the second targeted property tax this year.

The working poor and people who cannot buy property will have higher rent to pay, because that’s what happens when you target property for higher taxes.

Measures Y and Z were half-cent sales tax increases that the Town of Yucca Valley made to finance the sewer project and roads, put another measure like those so that everybody supports our schools, not just poor renters and property owners.

The reason they don’t want to make a real tax-free Bond initiative is because the last one is in debt and they can’t pay back investors.

NO ON MEASURE O, yes on a half-cent sales tax initiative in 2020 election.

New tennis courts, tracks and stadiums??? The heights of arrogance never cease to amaze me. Some folks will be forced out of their homes, others will need to move away, and yet more folks will have to do without, so that yet more luxury items can be added? NO, NO, NO! — Blayd
