Parcel tax Senior exemption
Original post made by Jack Hickey, Woodside: Emerald Hills, on May 1, 2011
Now, in the San Carlos parcel tax election (Measure A), the Senior exemption is getting a new spin from the Daily Post. In a front page note "Find out who doesn't pay the parcel tax", they promise to publish, on Monday morning, the names of 1,081 Seniors who have elected not to pay the existing parcel taxes. They should also state how many decided not to file.
There are 3 voting possibilities for such Seniors: YES, NO and ABSTAIN. I suspect that most of the Seniors on the Post's list will have voted NO. For those Seniors I suggest that they proudly display a lawn sign saying "Don't blame me, I voted NO". Many, who the District is counting on, will have abstained. For those Seniors on the exempt list who voted YES, hang down your head in shame.
