Letter: Not buying PCC bond
The slick ad asking for my vote to support Portland Community College's bond arrived in the mail a few days before our property tax statement.
The ad states that the bond "would maintain the tax rate of $0.40 per $1,000 of assessed property value, for 16 years."
After a trip to the county courthouse and discovering that this vote is not to "maintain" the rate, but will instead be added to the current rate, I have decided to vote no. This ad was intended to deceive homeowners and others in order to obtain a yes vote, and therefore more of the taxpayers' cash.
In addition, this was filed in Multnomah County by PCC and there is no mention of any of a plan to spend this money in Columbia County.
