POLITICS | Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association launches radio ad campaign opposing “Proposition 13” on the March ballot

With the March 3 election fast approaching, your Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is today launching a statewide radio ad campaign in opposition to this ballot’s Proposition 13, a $15 billion bond for school facilities that also will raise debt limits on local school districts, resulting in higher property tax bills. You can hear the ad by clicking here. The script is as follows:

This is Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, with an important message about the March 3rd election. 

There is a measure on the ballot that is numbered 13, but it has nothing to do with the famous Proposition 13 passed in 1978. THIS Proposition 13 lets the state borrow fifteen billion dollars for school construction projects. As a result, our children will be paying billions in interest costs for the next 35 years!

Just as bad, THIS Proposition 13 will raise property taxes. It will let local school districts take on nearly double the debt that current law allows. Listen carefully: this cost will be in addition to what you already pay on your property tax bill. Californians already pay some of the highest taxes in the country. Enough is enough.

We urge you to vote NO on THIS Proposition 13. Visit us at hjta.org for more information.

Paid for by No New Taxes, a Project of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

We hope you’ll tell your friends and family to vote NO on this Proposition 13. You can see all the HJTA PAC’s recommendations and endorsements in this election at this link:

And you can see the growing list of candidates who have signed HJTA’s new Pledge to Stand Up for Taxpayers at this link: https://www.hjta.org/hjta-pledge-to-stand-up-for-taxpayers/

Thank you for helping us fight for the interests of taxpayers. We greatly appreciate you!

Sincerely, 

Jon Coupal
President, HJTA

    The Oxnard School District already can exceed the 1.25% limit.
    From a report by Caldwell Flores Winters to the Oxnard School District Board of Trustees dated June 2019.

    “To comply with the California Education Code and issue additional bonds, the District applied to CDE and was granted a waiver in March of 2017 authorizing the District to exceed its bonding limit of 1.25 percent to an amount equal to 2.12 percent (or less) of total assessed valuation at the time of bond issuance. The waiver has an expiration date of August 1, 2025.”
