Letter to the Editor: I support a NO vote on LFP's Prop 1

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I am appalled to note that with regard to the presentation from the Shoreline Historical Museum, the City Manager advised that "no action is necessary."

With regard to the property tax ballot measure, I note that the Shoreline City Manager and City Attorney recommended that the Council adopt Res. 307 on July 26, placing a 6-year property tax levy lid lift on the November 2 ballot. I am sure such a measure will meet the same resistance that Lake Forest Park Proposition 1 is expected to receive on ballots being mailed later this month.

Like many of my neighbors, I strongly support a NO vote on LFP's Prop 1. The measure is not what it pretends to be, it's too confusing and too much, there are no guarantees as to how the money would be spent, and it's certainly not the time to add yet another permanent local tax increase.

Here is a great example of where Prop 1 could lead us and what happens when folks are not paying good enough attention. Time to remind everyone what democracy is all about. See link below.
