More to ‘Know’

In August 24th’s letter to the editor, the Civil Service Commissioner questioned: Is the right to vote on new city taxes for Signal Hill residents worth the cost to put that question on the ballot?
Know and Vote provides the opportunity for Signal Hill voters to answer that question for themselves. If Signal Hill voters want the right to vote on new city bond issues, property fees, assessments or taxes, they sign the petition. If Signal Hill voters want to put on the ballot whether there should be full city disclosure of who pays, how much, for how long, who gets the money and how the money will be spent, they sign the petition.
Like the Founding Fathers, the supporters of Know and Vote trust The People to make reasoned judgment regarding new taxes, fees, and expenditures.
