Measure X made a loud and clear statement to the city council, city employees, Modesto Police Officers Association, Modesto Fire Fighters Association and the other unions. The city has not been able to get money from the other sources. So they think that they can go directly into the pockets of the taxpayer and get it from purchases that we make. Sorry, I cannot afford it.
I thank those who took the time to vote on this issue and put an end to the abuse. Hopefully the people of Modesto can put the pressure on these people to do their jobs or remove themselves from the job.
