I support Tom Maher for Modesto City Council Chair 6. Maher is an advocate for taxpayers, which is exactly what we need more of in local government.
Modestans are overtaxed; our water, sewer and trash bills have skyrocketed, thanks to former City Councils not requiring growth to pay its own way, and forces are still scheming to raise sales taxes for roads. They tried to raise road taxes last election and lost. Former City Councils have wasted millions hiring consultants and lost revenue by allowing some businesses on McHenry Avenue not to pay for their water.
