|It's Weds morning. Look at who you just woke up with.|
And look at it this way. How are you going to feel if you wake up on Wednesday morning and the naked guy in the hammock with the glow on and the beer in his hand turns out to have won a seat on your City Council? Would you personally be able to bear up under the ignominy of having helped to send him there? Do you really want to live in what would be the laughingstock of the San Gabriel Valley? Nobody ever would. Vote successfully. The consequences of doing otherwise are not all that good.
The Tattler loves its charts
If you care to know why Measure UUT is the fraud that it is, all you need to do is revel in the wisdom of the following charts. We posted these over the course of the last six weeks, but here they are all in one happy place. If you know anybody on the fence about our double digit and highest in the state utility taxes, show them these beauties. I took them door to door and even the most adamant pro-tax nut began to question their beliefs after viewing them. They're magic charts.
We pay ridiculously expensive health plan costs for select city workers
At 10% we pay some of the highest utility tax rates in California
Select Sierra Madre employees have the most expensive health plans in California
Sierra Madre is taxed on all UUT categories. Very few cities do that.
Measure UUT really is a tax increase. If you find this hard to believe, seek help.
