PARA's Special Speaker to Address PUSD's Measure B
On Thursday October 23rd the Porterville Area Republican Assembly will have as their SPECIAL SPEAKER, Mr. John Hardin, who will address and answer all questions regarding Measure B.

As the Committee Chairman for Taxpayers Against Wasteful PUSD Spending, a committee opposing Measure B, Mr. Hardin wants the public to know all the facts, namely, that this committee successfully opposed PUSD's Measure J in the 2012 election cycle and is opposing Measure B now.

Continuing, Mr. Hardin has informed PARA, that this committee, along with PUSD board member Dave DePaoli, believes that Measure B is a bad idea at a bad time. Mr. Hardin believes that the PUSD should live within its already massive existing $124 million dollar annual budget, and asking for an additional $67 million dollar new TAX on the backs of farmers, business and homeowners - struggling to survive difficult economic times and an unprecedented draught - makes zero sense.

Come and find out why Mr. Hardin believes this is a money grab and why PUSD needs Measure B passed before the new California gas tax increase kicks in on January 1st of 2015 ... estimated to be roughly .50 cents a gallon.

PARA meets on the fourth Thursday of the month in the Fellowship Hall of the Freewill Baptist Church, located at 91 North Prospect Ave. Meeting starts at 6PM and seating will be limited, so get there early.

Word Count : 232
