Vote No on Prop NS Property Tax Hike

 

PropNSballot

Initiative Petition posted at end.

This bond is a bond issue by initiative petition which, if it passes, will be paid for with increased property taxes.

Say NO to a property tax increase that does not say “tax increase” on the ballot and to the initiative petition drive in which signature gatherers lied and said there was no tax increase involved.

Say NO to a bond issue and tax increase which was not vetted by the Board of Aldermen.

Say NO to a tax hike on the eve of  the City needing to find solutions to a $20 Million budget deficit.

Say NO to creating more funding for the St. Louis Development Corporation, an independent city agency with major transparency issues.

Also, be aware that former Mayor Vincent Schoemehl has been spearheading this proposal from the beginning, invested at least $1000 to the Prop NS campaign committee, and loaned the committee another $1350.

Is funding the stabilization of structures and reducing demolition by neglect a worthy cause? Yes.

Are there some very dedicated, earnest people working for passage of this ballot issue? Yes.

But this is neither the right proposal nor the right time to pass a tax hike.

Vote No on Prop NS.
