Louis Levin: Measure X ad misleading

November 2, 2013 

The full page ad in favor of Measure X, “Just The Facts, Ma’am,” is very misleading. They say that “Measure X restores police funding to 2008 levels by adding 60 officers” that “Measure X would fully staff police burglary, gang, drug and car theft units,” that “Measure X upgrades local streets and helps economic development efforts” and other comments that are not in the text of Measure X.

Please take the time to read the measure because nowhere does it address the above concerns. All the measure states is that a 1 percentage point sales tax increase will add money to the city’s general fund to be used however the council decides. Please vote no on Measure X. Don’t be misled by Halloween scare tactics and false statements.
