The recession will impact city services deeply. While more progressive measures like taxing corporations should be the way we fill the gap, this small 1/4¢ sales tax would make a big difference for Milpitas.
It is possible to fully and reliably fund our hospitals, our emergency and safety-net services and the world where all our communities can thrive. However, instead these resources are lining the pockets of millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations. That’s why we support fair, equitable taxes — for budgets that ensure our children will inherit quality public education and public goods, no matter what they look like or where they come from. Ultimately, we urge you to support California’s Proposition 15, which will reclaim $12 billion per year for schools and local community services from the wealthiest corporations.
