LWVC CALLS FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SIGN PETITIONS FOR PROPOSITION TO FUND SCHOOLS
The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 will restore over $11 billion per year to California’s schools, community colleges, health clinics, and other vital local services.
We can no longer afford to keep giving billions of dollars in tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations. Closing California’s commercial property tax loophole restores $11 billion for schools, community colleges’ and other vital community services, including emergency responder services, parks, libraries, health clinics, trauma centers, affordable housing, homeless services, and roads.
Join the League of Women Voters of California and others to fund California schools by closing the Corporate Property Tax Loophole in Proposition 13 while continuing to guarantee protections for homeowners, residential renters, agricultural land, and small businesses.
An information flyer on this proposition is attached. HOW CAN I HELP?
The first step is to get the measure on the November ballot. In order to do this supporters must collect over 500,000 signatures. Richard Maurer, a Board member, has volunteered to spearhead efforts to secure signatures for Eden Area League.
He has petitions for us to collect signatures on this ballot measure, so voters can decide in November whether or not to support this proposed change in Proposition 13.
The State LWV is making a concerted effort to help get this proposition on the November ballot. We need everyone to pitch in. Each petition requires only eight (8) signatures.
This is an important effort and one long overdue. Let’s not waste this opportunity. Please let Richard know how many petition forms you want and he will either deliver or snail mail them to you. His contact info is:
