Will someone explain Measure K? I hear the county wants to increase sales tax to improve roads and structures. The roads in Stanislaus County are awful, I will give you that. But where is all the extra money from sales tax going now? And why can't we use that? You say, what money? Let me explain: Let's say it used to cost $40 to fill your gas tank; sales tax at 7.375 percent is $2.95; now it costs you $80 to fill your tank. At the same rate, that's $5.90 -- or another $2.95 the county is getting. There are a lot of cars in Stanislaus County. The county is just like any other government; it wants more and more of your money and it will make you promises it has no intention of keeping.
