Or at least they say they are on their issues page. They go on at length about the problems with Proposition 13, and how important it is to “Make it Fair,” by closing corporate tax loopholes that take money from our schools – “…we lose vital funding for schools…”
So why would the Alameda League of Women Voters endorse Measure B1, which likewise includes a tax loophole – a cap that benefits only large corporations – and takes vital funding from our schools?
The annual tax cap in Measure B1, and the existing parcel tax, protects big corporations by making average homeowners pay more, and limiting the amount that corporations pay. This transfers the cost from Wall Street to Park Street. And Central Avenue. And Lincoln, and Santa Clara, and Haight, and Otis Drive… well, you get the picture.
Tell the Alameda League of Women Voters… No on B1!
