We've all been affected by the slow market. Now is the time to do something!
This Tuesday we have a chance to vote on Property Tax Reform. Now I have been one of the biggest complainers about Amendment 1. I don't think it does enough - period. But I am also a realist and understand that if we do nothing - we keep the status quo. Not Good Enough. Prop 1 MUST pass or we have no chance of a better market in 2008.
With all that said -- GET OUT AND VOTE YES ON 1. This is close -- latest polls say about 57% favor the amendment and 13% are undecided. Talk to your undecided friends. The message is - it's not perfect, but it sure beats nothing. So GET OUT AND VOTE AND TAKE SOMEONE ALONG.
And don't be swayed by the local governments crying the blues. Their tax base has more than doubled in the past 5 years and they just keep on spending. OUR income didn't double in the last 5 years - its time they start living within a budget too.
VOTE TUESDAY -- VOTE SMART!
