SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Mike Pouraryan is the latest cheerleader for raising taxes “for the children” with his recent Letter to the Editor regarding Measure H and Measure I.
While I admire the fact he volunteered his time to serve on the committee and serve as vice chair, I must question the logic of lobbying for once again another tax simply because those in Sacramento (Democrats) can’t do their job properly.
We had to fix our own roads in Orange County with Measure M for the same reason. Bonds are not free money. Property owners pay for it with a tax increase. Landlords then raise the rent to pay for it, hurting those who can least afford it.
Businesses raise prices to pay for it. If voters approve these two bonds, it simply encourages more bad behavior in Sacramento. Vote no on H and I, stop voting for Democrats, and recall Gov. Gavin Newsom.
