Background: Measure D was rejected by voters in March 2017 when it failed to reach 2/3 in favor. It would have levied a parcel tax on the citizens of PVE for a period of 12 years, and would have replaced an earlier “Fire Tax” that expired in 2017. This new tax would generate approximately $5 million in revenue per year with escalation clause of up to 6% per year. All current City Councilmembers supported the Measure.
Question: Did you support Measure D? What were your reasons?
