Vote no on Measure E

By From page A6 | October 16, 2012

Enough is enough!  The Davis public school bureaucrats, after having pushed through four tax increases — Measures Q, W, A and C, to transfer $520 annually from Davis families to themselves — are now at the trough again on E demanding more.

Measure E would charge Davis homeowners $204 annually plus $242 more if a state tax does not pass, plus an additional unknown amount per year depending on inflation, while senior citizens pay zero (because older people vote), apartment owners pay a mere $20, while the nearly 500 nonresident Davis public school students pay zero.
We all want quality education, but the top-heavy bureaucracy, after running bloated budgets for years, has recently made token budget adjustments for public relations only, and still pays four administrators collectively more than $500,000 per year.
Before we dig deeper to feed the insatiable, they need to earn it by streamlining, reducing administrative positions, reducing benefits packages to those typically available to private-sector employees, and prioritizing math, reading and science.
