In their seemingly eternal quest to extract more tax dollars from area citizens, the proponents of Measure L have again crafted a proposition that does not address the major, and in many cases the sole concern of residents regarding our byways: that of fixing existing roadways.
Although the measure has a life of 25 years, why would we think it would end there when it is obvious the powers that be cannot get by on current income. What happens when any increase is ended? What is the penalty if the money is not spent as designated? Will the tax be suspended? It is interesting to note that major funding to promote Measure L is by California Alliance for Jobs which is funded by heavy construction companies and union construction workers from Kern County to Oregon. Vote NO on Measure L.
