Dangerous wording. Real and personal. Real is your land, home, buildings. Personal is anything that can be moved, such as, vehicles, furniture, jewelry, clothes. Think about it. Ask questions but please use your computer to educate yourself. We absolutely cannot afford to allow this to happen. Are you, as a county, going to allow 5 people ( who don’t care that you voted them in office to speak for you and one appointed who doesn’t realize it applies to her too) but are you going to sit back and allow this to happen? There is a petition circulating to prevent them from making it a law. The petition is to get it on the ballot again so that we the voters can decide on it. This tax will be like a credit card debt. It will never end. We only have a short period of time to collect 750 signatures. If you are against this tax that will be on top of what you already pay, please sign the petition.
