Yes on M: It will save tax dollars

I support Measure M because we need to ensure that our local government is working as efficiently as possible. Measure M will accomplish some needed reforms that many people have been wanting for years.

Not only will Measure M make our government more accountable to taxpayers, but it will also save taxpayers' money. M creates an independent auditor to watch over city spending and identify areas of inefficiency and waste. Independent auditors in other California cities have saved taxpayers millions of dollars.

Considering Modesto's recent budget difficulties, we can't afford not to have an independent auditor.

If you need any more reason why concerned taxpayers should vote "yes" on M, just look at the strong endorsement by the Stanislaus County Taxpayers Association. Measure M will help our city and our taxpayers.
