Re: No on Prop 224!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To my fellow engineers:

I have sent the following message to everyone in my e-mail address book and
would encourage you all to cut and paste it and do the same.


Bruce Resnick, SE
Parker Resnick Str. Eng.

To all:

While I am normally not very involved in politics, I would strongly encourage
all of you California voters to vote tomorrow (June 2) and VOTE NO ON

  I AGREE STRONGLY!  VOTE NO ON 224,  "We'll pay more wiht 224!"

Tom Benson, GE
Lowney Associates


This is an anti-competitive measure that would raise taxes, lower quality, and
really hurt privately owned architectural and engineering design firms such as
Parker Resnick.

More info can be found at "". (a little bit of which I copied

Even if you are not from California, please copy this message and forward it
to everyone on your mail list.  If you send it to 50 people, and they send it
to 50 people, etc., etc., ... soon the whole state will get the message!

Thanks for you help and support,

"Nothing on this June's election ballot threatens the economy and budget of
California more seriously than Proposition 224, a poorly drafted, ill-
conceived initiative pushed by self-serving special interests."

Sacramento Bee (May 5, 1998)

"A sneaky sham... Proposition 224 is a bad idea in every way"

San Diego Union Tribune (May 14, 1998)

Beware! The so-called ?competitive bidding? initiative is NOT what it pretends
to be. It?s a wolf in sheep?s clothing. If you support competitive bidding and
taxpayer savings, you?ll want to vote AGAINST Prop. 224.

Prop. 224 is opposed by California Taxpayers Association, California Chamber
of Commerce, PTA, Structural Engineers Association of California and many
others because it would mean bigger state government and higher taxes. In
fact, Prop. 224 would result in 15,000 new state employees at a cost of $1.7
billion a year.
