Arkin's early budget idea finally clarified
Original post made by Independent reader, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 29, 2009
"A caller to The Independent said that Reugsegger's characterization of budget talking points by trustee Valerie Arkin as being in correct. Arkin was quoted as having said the district would be able to save programs without a parcel tax. However, Reugsegger failed to say that saving programs would be tied to a $175 annual parcel tax.
Arkin told The Independent that her idea would not have required a parcel tax in the first year. However, one would have needed it in subsequent years."
