City Tells Residents the Water is All Clear: Didn't Prop C Fail?
The city publishes a multi-color glossy newsletter. It is typically filled with self-congratulatory content. Although, it has improved recently, because it has increased the educational content and upcoming issues announcements.
The most recent newsletter has a picture of 4 girls sitting in the sand.
The piece trumpets the great water quality of our city.
Two years ago the ETA opposed the council's "clean water" tax (a.k.a. Prop C). The fee was a deception. It would not have brought us cleaner water and the city was already providing the same clean water services they would have if Prop C passed. The ETA's winning motto was, "Don't Pay Twice." Prop C lost by 2 to 1.
Thanks to the Encinitas Taxpayer Association's campaign, we aren't paying twice for our clean water.
The "clean water" fee ballot measure was brought to the citizens by Stocks, Houlihan, Bond, Dalager, and Guerin.
