Jon Coupal and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association nailed LA County for wrongly promoting a 2017 sales tax increase. The problem was that LA County failed to report political contributions while spending YOUR money to promote a sales tax increase. This was for another homeless tax boondoggle, Measure H, which will generate over 3 billion dollars over 10 years.
BTW, do you see less homeless? Of course not. And of course, voters voted yes on this ridiculous tax in 2017.
Sac Bee has the story here. This an excerpt that explains how your tax dollars were wasted while greasing yet another "strategic communications firm":
The Los Angeles County settlement centers on Measure H, a quarter-percent county sales tax increase aimed at funding homeless services and prevention, on the March 7, 2017 Special Election ballot.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors put the measure on the ballot and hired the strategic communications firm TBWB with a nearly $1 million contract to promote it through a public education campaign and advertising.
Commercials for the campaign included the slogan “Real help. Lasting Change.” Information about Measure H also ran on Spanish-language radio stations in the Los Angeles area and encouraged listeners to visit an official website to get more information.
Jon Coupal will talk to John & Ken today at 4pm. Be sure to listen and be sure not to vote for any more ridiculous tax increases this November.
