AUGUST 20 VOLUME 4 ISSUE 33:
"Welcome to this edition of the Fifth District Report, an electronic newsletter keeping you updated about the events taking place in Orange County and in the Fifth District."
Community Facilities Districts and Assessment Districts
(YAWN-IT'S SOME B.S. ABOUT MELLOS ROOS)
"The Community Facilities District Act (AKA Mello-Roos) is a law which was enacted by the California Legislature in 1982.
The name Mello-Roos comes from its co-authors, Senator Henry Mello (Monterey area) and Assemblyman Mike Roos (Los Angeles). (2 DEMOCRATIC DICKS- OBVIOUSLY)
The Act enabled Community Facilities Districts (CFDs) to be established by local government agencies as a means of obtaining community funding.
The services funded by Mello-Roos may include a wide range of infrastructure projects and services, including streets, water, sewage and drainage, electricity, schools, parks, and police protection to newly developing areas."
In other words, all you California taxpayers out there, a special tax is collected on certain communities (usually newer, recently built ones) for
salaries, pensions and assorted perks for the no good politicians of these "newly developed communities" disguised as "projects, water, sewage, drainage,electricity, schools, parks, and police protection"
These things, I'm ALREADY paying for in my regular property taxes and my salary-but these whores want more-so they charge a "mellos roos" named after 2 crooked politicians from 1982 who were pissed off that proposition 13 passed in 1978, which meant property taxes couldn't be raised so they had to think of other ways to squeeze money out of taxpayers. Ergo Mellos-Roos.
I don't know about you, but if I fart too hard my electricity blows out, as far as "projects/water/sewage/drainage/schools/parks,and police protection"
"WTF????" Where? What? When? Whatcha talkin bout, Willis?
It's high time this Mellos-Roos shit is looked at again and hopefully repealed.
Evidently, this old geezer-ette either doesnt have the energy to represent us whipper snappers in this matter or feels real good about Mellos Roos, afterall, she doesn't want to lose her pension at this point (paid for by District 5 Taxpayers in a mellos-roos development), in other words, she doesn't give a fat rat about all those 600,000 constituents she represents.
BTW-I did see Pat Bates in person recently at a meet/greet (She arrived late in full wig dress, and yes, she is old-all that was missing were those giant welder sunglasses),
I asked her what she did all day and her reply was-she's in meetings all day. (I felt my shoe coming off-I fought the urge to heave it... cause I'm a lady).
