Thank Chris, and welcome to the LPSF discussion list!
Chris lives in San Mateo county, but is interested in the issue of fighting bond measures throughout the state. Mike Denny put me in touch with him when I replied to his recent message here about this issue.
Government also tries to extract money from the public in underhanded ways without acknowledging they are raising taxes. I recently tweeted for the LPSF on Twitter about what may well be one such effort, the new policy of charging variable amounts for metered street parking in San Francisco at different locations and different times of day:
Love & Liberty,

This OpEd by journalist Dan Borenstein (from Bay Area News Group) sums up the problems blue state CA lawmakers undermining democracy but hoodwinking voters with new taxes.
If these taxes are such a great idea, why doesn’t Newsom and CA Legislators be honest with voters and let them know what you’re really asking them to sign up for?
Let Scott Wiener know we expect honesty in our elections and not a sales pitch hiding the true intent to tax!
