FAIRFIELD-SUISUN, CALIFORNIA

Opinion

Sound off for Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012

By From page A10 | September 09, 2012

Last week, Managing Editor Glen Faison wrote a column about Fairfield sending a mailer on the upcoming 1 percent tax initiative which it used out-of-area companies to produce and distribute and used some questionable language.

Here are some responses to that column:

  • When I got this mailer I was surprised that it was sent by the city. I have already trashed my mailer but I will be contacting the commission to see if it is too late to file a complaint. If the city wants this to pass, they need to raise funds outside of taxpayer dollars to send mailers. You can compare this to the mayor using city dollars to run for mayor.
  • I have been saying this for years about mailers, although mostly from political candidates. I hate to see an out-of-town permit on mailers from local candidates. There are local printers and mailing houses that I am sure can use the business. I will vote against this tax because I think the mailer was over the line and I think the city will misuse the funds and spend money out of the community just like with this mailer. When will our local government and political candidates grab a clue?
