[Taxpayers Association of El Dorado County]

Here is what the supporters aren't telling you --

• NO expiration date in the Measure making $96 a permanent tax. This makes it  difficult to repeal if the tax is misspent or not achieving what was promised. 

• NO clarity. The widely distributed colored flier says, "SUPPORT PUBLIC SAFETY"  for "more fire fighters, better equipment, more paramedics", but FAILS TO TELL THE PUBLIC THAT IT IMPOSES A $96 PARCEL TAX.
