Voters say “no” to 75% tax increase

A special election was held on Feb. 13, 2018 for a levy for the Port Angeles School District (PASD).  The Clallam County Republican Party (CCRP) urged voters in a Resolution (read more below) to vote “no” for a variety of reasons – and the voters agreed!  The levy lost, and the taxpayers were saved from a heavy tax burden on their property.  Take a few minutes and read some of the reasoning behind a “no” vote – and some positive alternatives to help solve the problem in the PASD.  Click here.

Jan. 8, 2018 – Central Committee passes Resolution Advising Rejection of Port Angeles School District’s Proposed Capital Levy

On January 8, 2018, at its monthly central committee meeting, the Clallam County Republican Party (CCRP) advising rejection of the Port Angeles School District’s (PASD) Proposed Capital Levy.

Key points about this Resolution are:

  1. The PASD board does not consistently state the purpose of the levy.
  2. This measure flouts the will of the people for a super majority vote to raise taxes.
  3. The capital levy, factually, will increase PASD taxpayers’ school district property tax by 75% and is exorbitant because this levy must be paid in six-years.
  4. Initiative 1351 mandates Washington state’s legislature and not the school districts’ taxpayers to provide smaller class sizes;
  5. PASD’s current enrollment totals 1254 less students than peak 1990 and total enrollment and recent yearly enrollment varies little;
  6. The PASD Board excludes modular construction thus costing PASD taxpayers at least 35% more than necessary;
  7. Credible research concludes smaller class sizes may produce no improvement in student learning;
  8. The PASD Fairview Elementary renovation would provide another school and modular construction could furnish a few classrooms if needed;
  9. The PASD Board official claims to establish “life safety” as its “highest priority,” but, instead, asks for $46.7 million to “relieve overcrowding” or provide smaller class sizes.  READ MORE AT  https://www.stop75percenttax.com

Thoughts from Our Founders…

“Would it not be better to simplify the system of taxation rather than to spread it over such a variety of subjects and pass through so many new hands.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” ~Frederic Bastiat

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” ~Patrick Henry
