It's already wacky enough that about 80% of the kids living in the Eastview area of R.P.V. attend P.V.P.U.S.D. schools without the members of their families allowed to vote on P.V.P.U.S.D. issues and races.
I wonder if P.V.P.U.S.D. wants to impose a parcel tax on properties owned by folks who have no vote or real say in P.V.P.U.S.D. matters.
ANOTHER TAX!!!! Are they NUTS?
Arnie, the State Assembly, and the State Senate already provided all of us with hefty tax increases.
Tony Villar and Janice Hahn helped see to it that parking fees in San Pedro was increased more than dramatically.
As progressive as my politics are, I simply cannot afford to be taxed one cent more.
I guess many of the folks living in Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Palos Verdes Estates, and portions of Rancho Palos Verdes can afford to pay more in taxes, but those of us living in the Eastview area ( of R.P.V.) already pay the education portion of our property taxes to the State of California for the benefit of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
If we don't get to vote in P.V.P.U.S.D. issues and a parcel tax is applied to properties in Eastview, it will surely become taxation without representation. If I remember correctly, many of our ancestors fought in a revolution to end that inequality.
