No on G: Bad time to increase property taxes

Here we go again. Supporters of Measure G say it is good for Hart Ransom School. Supporters say it will help finance major improvements. Some will even say if you don't vote "yes" on this measure, that you don't care about your community. In reality, this measure will increase the average property tax bill by $100 or more per year. At a time when foreclosures are popping up all around us, utilities have skyrocketed and the cost of fuel has gone up, it is not the time for increasing homeowner's property taxes. A "no" vote on this measure is what I call caring for your community.
