One percent is a lot

September 28, 2013 

I want to thank The Bee for posting so many articles that show the abuse of tax money by the city of Modesto.

I have to say that includes state and government workers as well. Overpaid in every way – overtime, vacations, retirement. And it goes up more and more. Where does it all end?

It can end by voting “no” on the city tax increase of 1 percent. It may not seem a lot to you but it is to me and many others out there. Let’s fight this with Facebook and Twitter. Post it. Do not let them scare you into voting “yes.”
