I'm a little sick of the ads claiming Measure Z's tax increase will bring about 'more effective' prosecutions - REALLY? And how is that?
No one has fixed the fundamental problem at the DA's Office, don't lie.
Then there's this:
◼ County to pay $700 one time money to employees instead of pay raise; Will Measure Z be used for public safety or for union contracts? - John Chiv/Words Worth
Seems to me, the one thing the Supervisors could do - and have not done, as far as we know - is stand up to the state, refuse to give the County's money to the state, demand that the County be allowed to keep its money rather than have it doled back, pennies on the dollar, in the form of grants. That stand should be taken before ANY attempt to charge people more, when it is just going to go down the rathole.
Solve the fundamental problems first.
Just say NO.
