PROPOSITIONS / BONDS / OVERRIDES
PROPOSITION 207 – VOTE NO | No207AZ.com
The “Smart and Safe Arizona Act” is anything but smart or safe. It would change Arizona’s State Constitution to legalize recreational marijuana and have a negative impact on our economy. It would be harmful to kids as marijuana would be sold in gummies, candies, cookies, soda and vape pens. Weakens the rights of employers to maintain a drug-free workplace. Would make it more difficult to get Marijuana impaired drivers off the road. Changes the definition of Marijuana and would include hashish, currently a narcotic in Arizona. Money from the sales would go to expunge criminal records.
PROPOSITION 208 – VOTE NO | NoProp208AZ.com
The so called “Invest in Ed” prop would be the largest tax increase in Arizona’s history and be detrimental to our economy. 50% of those impacted by this massive tax increase will be small businesses while they struggle the most. No accountability for the spending. Initiative is heavy on administration and light on in class support. 99% of the funding for the yes campaign comes from out of state unions and other special interests. If passed Arizona would be in the top 10 highest income tax states in the country, right up there with Vermont, New York and California.
Proposition 449 – VOTE NO
Valleywise Health M&O tax levy - This is for a 20-year continuation of a secondary property tax levy for the Maricopa County Special Health District, which includes the public teaching hospital, AZ Burn Center, 3 behavioral health hospitals, and 12 family health centers. Current tax expires in 2025.
Peoria Unified School District Override – VOTE NO
Continuing PUSDs 13% Override (decreasing, but still in effect for 2 more years) ignores the economic impact COVID-19 has inflicted on our families and businesses. Just as everyone else has had to do, PUSD needs to tighten its belt for now.
Peoria Unified School District Bond – VOTE NO
PUSDs bond request is nearly double of what is required to cover essential needs. It would impose taxes on everyone for up to 15 years to pay for maintenance on facilities that may be closed based on the District’s pending facilities utilization study.
Dysart Unified School District Override – VOTE NO
Less than one year ago voters in DUSD overwhelmingly voted to reject this budget override. If approved, the measure would extend the existing override, which is funded by property taxes. Many families are still deferring mortgage/rent payments and utility bills in hopes they can return to work soon. We should be giving struggling families tax relief. A NO vote results in a phase-out of the Override and tax cut to the residents.
