Dave Howell: If a public or private entity provided worsening service would you favor them taking even more of your money?

30 Oct

Dave Howell wrote another great letter to the ER the other day. He sent me the survey, and I posted it here:

I’m still working on making it more readable, but it’s there, please take the time to look it over and join the conversation. And write those letters!

From Dave Howell:

EMC Research conducted a survey for the city council that found half the respondents thought the city was headed in the wrong direction. Only thirty percent thought the city was headed in the right direction. Paradoxically seventy percent favored the city taking more of their hard earned money via a tax increase. If a public or private entity provided worsening service would you favor them taking even more of your money?

For the respondents who answered in the affirmative how do you think they would have answered if they were told that for well over a decade the city council has siphoned off huge amounts of money that should have gone for infrastructure maintenance and other vital programs to pay for unsustainable employee costs such as pensions and that the city council will use the money from the tax increase to add hundreds of millions of dollars of new debt so this can continue? Do you think EMC mentioned that? Not a chance as that would require integrity, a foreign concept to vile EMC. The city council is giving EMC our tax dollars for one purpose only and that is to make sure the tax increase passes. The purpose of the survey is to help determine how to word the ballot measure so it is most likely to pass.

Remember that next year when our incompetent and corrupt city council and the masters of deception at EMC begin their propaganda campaign, euphemistically called education.
