YOLO COUNTY NEWS
99 CENTS

Measure H? Hell no!

Although I respect some of the advocates of Measure H, I cannot in good conscience vote in favor of this measure, which would steal your right to elect Yolo County’s auditor-controller.

In 1986 and 1998, Yolo County’s citizenry weighed in on this issue; both times we said, “no!” One has to wonder why Yolo’s supervisors and mayors don’t care about what citizens told them twice before. Why aren’t they listening? Sure, our financial affairs are different and more difficult, but one has to wonder why they, the supervisors, instead of us, the people they are supposed to serve, should select the next auditor-controller.

Many of us have seen some the slipshod policies of our local officials … rushed multimillion-dollar water deals … rampant cronyism … and other missteps along the way.

You, as citizens, have the right to select an independent, honestly elected, and publicly accountable auditor-controller, not some crony of one or more of the Board of Supervisors or any of Yolo County’s four mayors. The foxes want to operate Yolo County’s financial henhouse.

The suggestion that this “consolidation” will save money is a hoax. I just don’t believe it; but if you do, let me sell you a sweet $325 million water deal.

Efficiency? What does mean? I bet there will be less accountability than we have now.

How will accountability be enhanced if Yolo’s citizens are taken out of the equation? There will likely be less scrutiny of Yolo County’s financial affairs.

Keep the foxes out of the henhouse and protect your right to elect your county’s auditor-controller. Vote no on H.
