I, for one, will vote “no” on any measure on the ballot that asks for a tax increase for anything. There is so much corruption that has been finally exposed in government accountability of funds, that the citizens’ tax dollars contribute to, that I say “show me your statements and bank accounts” before I contribute a dime to any new taxes. Where did/does all the income go from all those tax dollars our California lottery brings in? Wasn’t that supposed to be a panacea for all of the ills our education system was crying about? How could a system of checks and balances overlook money in accounts that were for a special purpose and simply forgotten? It does give one pause to consider the quality of government accounting practices. Any private firm would be in jeopardy of being closed down by this same government that can’t control its finances honestly. Vote NO!
