Tell Corvallis and Benton County "No" on Measure 2-121. I encourage everyone to always vote "No" in all special elections. Why? Because Corvallis government is demonstrating its lack of responsible fiscal management of our tax dollars. If it was really mindful of our hard-earned tax dollars, it would put all of its requests and measures on the general ballot.
I was unable to get a figure on how much it costs to run this special election but my guess is it is close to a million dollars or more when you figure staff time, benefits and materials. And for a city who wants to be "green," special elections fly in the face of "green efficiency." Put a stop to this craziness. Vote "No" on Measure 2-121 and send officials the message we expect them to use our tax dollars responsibly.
