CA ACA 1 – another attempt to lower the 2/3’s tax measure threshold disguised as a housing bill

8 Jan

Read below, about a bill introduced December 8 that will lower the voter approval threshold for a special tax from 2/3’s to 55 percent.

The Author, Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, District 4 Assembly member from Winters, does not allow you to contact her if you’re not from her district, but here’s her website.

If you want to let Aguiar-Curry know what you think of this clever attempt to disguise a tax measure as a housing measure, write to her hometown newspaper here:

Otherwise, write to your own assembly members and let them know what you think – in Chico that’s recently re-elected Jim Gallagher.

    She’s a Democrat. No surprise there. With the Democrats now having a super majority in the legislature (not to mention having every state wide office) and with Newsom promising vast amounts of new spending we can expect more of this. They will use every trick in the book and invent new ones to raise taxes.

      Did you read Walter’s piece about the Brown/Newsome/Pelosi/Getty dynasty? It’s like monarchy in California. They didn’t teach that in our history books.

        Yes, I saw that. The nepotism and cronyism is truly disgusting.

        It’s one big happy club and we are NOT members!

        Breakout the yellow vests!

        This is called “lack of focus”, and it’s what’s wrong with California right now.

    You never comtacted our office for a conversation about your concerns or to explain why local officials should not be able to ask their viters for support of local priorities to support the local economy. So how transparent and engaged are you? The Assemblymember’s phone is everywhere. Her office is in the State Capitol. And she meets daily with people from all over California. But you’re frustrated that you can’t just troll her on social media instead of engaging in a policy discussion. Your choice, not hers. And, by the way, after years of fires in her district in Lake, Sonoma, Yolo, Colusa and Napa, she was the first person to offer assistance to her colleagues dealing with the Camp Fire. You think they may want to ask their voters to support local rebuilding efforts? Under her initiative, they can if they want, and voters must support. If not, nothing happens.

      Mr. Ferrera,

      I tried to contact Ms. Aguiar-Curry by way of her website – she does not take e-mails from folks outside her zip code. You say her number is available but you don’t provide it?

      My problem with the bill, which you casually avoid talking about, is that she’s using a housing measure to try and change the 2/3’s voter approval threshold for taxation.

      You’re a troll and a creep – how much do we pay you to try and bully people out of the conversation Mr. Ferrera?

      You are nothing but a political hack who works for a corrupt politician controlled by special interests.
