This is why Tom Lando wants to raise our sales tax.


Are you aware that CalPers had a big loss on the stock market several years ago, and we’re still paying for it? In addition to these pensions. Yes, this is where ALL your tax money goes now.
Wake up – when was the last time you saw anybody doing any work on the roads, how high are the weeds getting on city owned property near your house? They’ve laid off all the worker bees in favor of the suits. They’ve retired a bunch of 50 year old people, just recently, and these leeches will get paid for NOTHING for their rest of their lives, hundreds and hundreds of THOUSANDS of dollars. Our city is in TROUBLE, and the talking heads can’t think of anything but how they will pay their own salaries.
No compromise on this tax – it’s just pig feed. Write to your mayor and council NOW  and tell them you’re not a pig farmer.

    I recognized the names of 2 former city managers on the list, Tom Lando
    and Fred Davis (there may be others I don’t know about). Their
    retirement alone is costing the city almost $300,000 per year. With
    Dave Burkland retiring you can add another $150,000 to that figure
    along with $150,000 to pay for the new city manager. $600,000 for one
    city job. Maybe in 5 years it will go to $750,000 when the next guy
    retires. No wonder the city is broke! If a business provided this kind
    of retirement they would definitly go bankrupt and so would the
    retirement fund. This is pure insanity!
