The failure of the stormwater tax to pass shows that a new tax to fund this effort is unlikely to pass. That is despite a massive advertising campaign. The proponents are saying that they need to reach a new "consensus."
I pray for rain regularly. It is a blessing from God. It is in all living things. "It's how we're connected." Many hands make light work, yet 1B will charge just the property owners to solve our drainage problems.
Sorry, Gazette, but the only difference between this effort and the last stormwater "fee" fiasco is that the politicians found a way to insulate themselves from the political fallout of lying to the people.
It is hard to believe that the Gazette Editorial Board resorted to the Hillary Clinton book of "what difference does it make" with their "who cares" line. WE CARE. The fee-based approach removes and limits DIRECT accountability to the voters.
The Pro 1B forces are spending a fortune to push this fee-that's-really-a-tax, but based on the letters and comments in the Gazette and the opinions I hear from my neighbors, it appears their money is not going to be enough to overcome the truth.
