No water in Measure W (November 2, 2016)

The Town council has really pulled the wool over the eyes of a lot of residents here: Yet another letter writer (this time, John M. Farace) claims he is supporting the Town’s deceptive Measure W because he is concerned about water rates (Vote yes on Measure W, Daily Press, November 2, 2016).

This cannot be emphasized enough: Measure W has nothing to do with water rates. Zero. The word water doesn’t even appear in the text. Measure W is actually a blank check for the Town council to seek millions more in bonds without any additional voter input.

So if you are in favor of Measure W because of water rates, you are voting based on a lie that emanates from Town Hall.

Vote no on Measure W, and yes on Measure V.

Greg Raven is Co-Chair of Apple Valley Citizens for Government Accountability, and is concerned about quality of life issues.
