On Vote No on Measure M

I urge everyone to vote YES on M.
The percentage of budget going to maintain infrastructure has decreased dramatically over the last 30 years while the percentage spent on salaries and pensions have increased widely.
We need to force to BOS to spend the money on infrastructure instead of the union wishes. Forcing them to spend on infrastructure will force them to deal with pensions and salaries.
We have firefighters in our immediate family and I can say for certain they know they are over paid and have amazing pensions. There is 100's of applicants for each opening, it is like winning the lottery to get a firefighter job.

Every one should pay into social security and there most not be any overhanging liabilities. When the books are closed for the year, all revenue and obligations need to be accounted for and the books balanced. The current pension plans do not fit this, and needs to be changed to a defined contribution plan.

Give them the 2% a year only if they agree to move to a std define contribution retirement benefit plan. Otherwise ZERO increase each and every year.We must stop kicking the can down the street and deal with the overhanging liability of the defined benefit plans.

Is Fair Share Reduction a new thing? Is Montecito union having to give back money? They get well over $20K per student from property tax.Or does Fair Share Reduction only involve RDA money.
