ACTION!! Off Cycle Election VIDEO Project
The Off Cycle Election Video Project
As you well know we got hammered in this last election. Property taxes are through the roof and most people have no idea yet, and will not till they get their tax bill next year. When they ask why, the answer they will inevitably get is ”the voters have spoken” and “it’s for the children”. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most voters weren’t paying attention because it was an Off Cycle Election and most of the money will go toward corruption, fraud and waste. That is why these elections must end.
These days, almost everyone has a smart phone, video camera or computer; all of which are capable of making a video recording. What I am asking you today is to video record yourself, in your own words, saying why you think off cycle elections are a bad idea citing your specific experiences. Once you have completed it, please email the video or a link to the video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some things to keep in mind when recording your video:
If you are interested in this project and have some technical expertise in video editing please let me know as your help would be greatly appreciated.
These videos will be edited together in a video “collage” as it were, for mass distribution.
The goal is to change hearts and minds regarding these elections and get them abolished in the next legislative session.
Following here are some examples of what has happened as a result of the most recent Off Cycle Election:
Wes Harris states:
Washington Elementary: $1,050.57
In Gilbert we had an increase in the property tax rate to over 5.25 for Gilbert Public Schools which is twice what it was four years ago!
2011 it was 2.4425/$100;
In addition to that, we now have an $18.6 Million Override and a $98 Million dollar Bond issue ALL OF WHICH IS FOR DISCRETIONARY SPENDING. And the legislature has pledged another $3.5 Billion in new taxes for K-12
