…it is very important
for me to continue to oppose any new taxes and work towards the total
elimination of our utility users tax. (He has done nothing but back tax increases like in 1997, 2001 and 2012!)
Alex Ethans 1996 Elections
Utility Tax - Did not keep his promise of 'no new taxes' as always. Voted to place a 50% increase on our ballot in June 2012. Supported the Stanton parcel tax in 1997, Supported the Stanton utility tax in 2001.
Other - It has been uncovered that his home addresses was used for the recent campaign that would have increased our utility taxes by over 50%. If it were up to him a family of 5 would be paying around $500 a year on the city utility tax and cell phone tax combined.
Notes: Do not reelect this candidate. Al Ethans has had a dramatic negative impact on our city and has not followed through on all of his major campaign promises.
