Tom LaBonge just asked City Council to "receive and file" his motion for a new parcel tax to restore Library services already being paid for by public fees and taxes.
Now let's see the City take care of their ballooning pension liability. As a taxpayer, I don't remember authorizing my tax money to be used for pensions rather than parks, libraries, and public safety. Do you?
PensionGate: the City's pension liability is a ticking time bomb, and the City Council and Mayor have had full understanding of this for at least a few years now. Have they done anything about it? No.
Why then are the City Council members who are responsible - everyone but Krekorian and Koretz - still in office?
We can vote half of those responsible out of office come next March. It's time.
