An Anonymous Questionnaire about the Utility Tax
Original post made by Martin Engel, Menlo Park: Park Forest, on Jun 10, 2007
My first question is, why would we respond to an anonymous questionnaire? My second question is, why would anyone send a "push poll" type of political questionnaire when there are no elections going on?
Clearly, this questionnaire is not seeking information. It is a biased political document masquerading as a questionnaire. These shadowy senders appear to have a strong anti-Council bias. That would be OK. But, be up-front and honest about it and don't try to us with phony questionnaires. If you're against the UUT, come out and say so. If you favor it, say that. IF you were legitimately conducting a survey or poll, Henry and Elizabeth, you would pose your questions in as neutral and unbiased a way as possible (unlike the present snide tone) and you would certainly identify yourself, name, rank and serial number!
