No on Measures M, N & O

I’m voting No on all three measures to cut out the utility tax and here’s why: Each one of these contemplates getting rid of a tax that is absolutely necessary to the basic functions of this City.  In the past year, the revenue from the utility tax made up approximately a quarter of the general fund.  Resources are already stretched thin and held under a microscope to provide City residents the services we want and need.  This is not a situation where there is fat to cut from.
