NO on Measure G - YES on K - No New Taxes, More Jobs - Pacific Grove, CA - mocotp.com
Measure G has been put forth by the Pacific Grove United School District that demands 27.8 million plus interest for upgrades in computers and technology for the next 15-18 years.
The supporters of this parcel tax increase probably do not take into considertion what many property owners are going through financially with Obamacare, where extimated costs show many property owners will have up to $6,000 or more in extra outlays as early as next year.
The unknown tax implementations of just Obamacare have middle class families panicking.
Either way, we have no idea how much money we will have to spend right now on Obamacare, and Measure G wants 28.7 million dollars from us on top of that. Add in a 40% water bill increase, less deductions on taxes, higher cost of living and you have a pie that few will eat. By lowering the percentage needed to pass, supporters hope there are enough "well to do" people that will help it sail through.
Supporters seem to think that the people who simply oppose any new tax regardless of the need of the community are a huge number when it's not. Actually, the ones they should worry about (and obviously could give a flip about) are on limited incomes. How are older people suppose to get more income around here? You'd think some of the supporters would have raised a red flag that this measure actually HARMS the struggeling homeowner. After watching the wasteful spending on the stadium, they see Pacific Grove as a noodle budget ordering lobster. In other words, spending more than is actually needed. The trust is gone with the PGUSD for many Pagrovians.
This is an absolute horrible economy for most Californians. But here in PG, it’s worse, because there are few well-paying jobs in Monterey County to supplement ones income to be able to afford to stay here with these huge new tax burdens. They tried to make it affordable, but the numbers don't add up to reducing costs of living, just up and up and up and up.
VOTE NO on G – No New Taxes in this Horrible Economy
Yes on K - To Create more Jobs in Monterey County
