LOVE received a copy of an email recently sent to the mayor and council regarding theft of Axe the Tax signs in the Oro Valley Country Club Estates neighborhood.
Honorable Mayor & Council,
We live in a beautiful neighborhood that surrounds the Oro Valley Country Club. This neighborhood has been a great example of a safe well-maintained neighborhood, relatively free of vandalism, etc., for many years.
Never have we had anything taken from our yard until now. Many of our neighbors, including us, have had "NO on Prop 454” signs taken from our property. Who would go so low to steal signs? Who would be so shallow minded that they can’t handle the fact that others have different opinions? What type of people would be so mean spirited that they can’t allow others freedom of speech, freedom to show, in the form of a sign, what one believes? It’s just plain nasty. These are the type of people you surround yourselves with.
Thank goodness for social media, because we are going to let as many people as possible know what is happening in our once safe neighborhood. Since we have NEVER had these dirty tricks happen in this area even during the most recent Presidential Election, we are to assume, that it must be someone that is new to this small community of Oro Valley Country Club Estates that doesn’t want ours and many other voices to be heard. Very sad.
This has emboldened us to fight even harder to get out the “NO on Prop 454” voters, and to tell others about the thuggery that is happening here in our neighborhood and in Oro Valley.
WE DO NOT WANT OUR PROPERTY TAXES INCREASED! NO ON PROP 454! NO NEW TAXES!
As stated on TOV website, the town is running $2M in the black, and since the Naranja Park so far has been on the “pay as you go” plan, the question needs to be answered. Why is there a need to add a property tax (Prop 454) to Oro Valley residences? We await your response.
