Letter Writer Makes Recommendation on Ballot Referendum

Share
My friends,
On November 7th, election day, there will be a referendum to vote on, with this wording:
Proposed Constitutional Amendment
Amending the Homestead Property Tax Assessment Exclusion
Shall the Pennsylvania Constitution be amended to permit the General Assembly to enact legislation authorizing local taxing authorities to exclude from taxation up to 100 percent of the assessed value of each homestead property within a local taxing jurisdiction, rather than limit the exclusion to one-half of the median assessed value of all homestead property, which is the existing law?[6]

​MY RECOMMENDATION IS TO VOTE “YES” ON THIS.​


​If that’s the extent of your interest, that’s all you need to know.  If you would like a more detailed explanation, see below.
Ed Bender
1. The Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance, of which I am an officer, has been working diligently for more than two years to achieve the passage of HB/SB 76 in Harrisburg, which would totally eliminate the property tax in PA as a way of funding our public schools. Dozens of other taxpayer organizations have worked with us toward that goal.
2. ​ The special interests–especially the teacher’s unions–have spent a great deal of money to persuade our legislators to vote against SB76.  Our legislators know how popular this legislation is with the voting public, and really don’t want it to come up for a vote.  They have tried every trick in the book to distract the public from SB76.
3.  The HB1285 referendum is, I believe, one more attempt to get you to take your eyes off the real thing.  If we vote “yes” on 1285, it will never result in any significant change.  It’s basically harmless.  But if we vote “no,” the opponents of SB76 will deceive the public by claiming, “See?  We gave them a chance to vote against school property taxes, and they turned it down!”  So I recommend a “yes” vote to stymie their con job on the PA public.
Call me if you wish to discuss this further: 610-929-2933.
