---- — To the editor:

As always toted, a small tax increase, 1 percent for open space, historical preservation (I can see that) but what do they have to do with low income housing?! This is another ploy to override Prop 21/2. These are things that our base tax used to cover. They used the trump card for police, fire and education; now where can they get more money for programs they robbed from.

Make this an optional donation program for those who want to contribute/donate, not a TAX that never goes away and always increases.
