Working together, 7526 citizens signed in opposing the Democrats’ bill eliminating our 1% property tax cap. That’s 94% of the total who signed in to testify against SB 5770. It was super impactful when I opened w/ that. Watch my testimony and let me know what you think.

Then I urge everyone to send emails to all 147 legislators: “94% of citizens oppose SB 5770 — Don’t Take Away the 1% Property Tax Cap. Reject this attack on seniors and working families.” I make it easy.

It was cold, rainy, ugly day in Olympia.

But I was on fire.

Got down there early and testified at a 1:30 pm hearing on 3 property tax increase bills (I’ll share those videos tomorrow).

Those got me warmed up for THE BIGGIE which was the 4pm hearing on SB 5770.

Just as I was getting ready to sit down and give my testimony, super supporter Jeff Pack sent me a text message telling me how many folks signed in:

That is remarkable.

Getting that many is exceedingly rare on any bill being heard in committee.

It took me a second to calculate the percentage:

I am so proud of all of you!

I urge everyone to email all 147 legislators. I make it really easy.

Send 2 separate emails: one to Senate and one to the House.

94% of citizens oppose SB 5770 — Don’t Take Away the 1% Property Tax Cap. Reject this attack on seniors and working families.

Copy & Paste this into the body of the email (or write something on your own — tell ’em how this makes you feel):

At Thursday’s hearing in the Senate Ways & Means committee, 7526 citizens signed in opposing SB 5770 — that’s 94%! Our message to legislators is crystal clear: Don’t Take Away the 1% Property Tax Cap. Reject this attack on seniors and working families. Even with the cap, property taxes are still a huge burden.  aking this protection away will make property taxes skyrocket making housing even more unaffordable to homeowners and renters. And this law has always included a safety valve: if governments want a bigger increase, they simply have to get the voters’ permission. The people overwhelmingly passed this and Gov. Gregoire & legislators overwhelmingly passed it too. For 22 years, taxpayers have counted on this protection. Don’t take it away. OPPOSE SB 5770 and any bills like it.

Is it any wonder that Bully Bob Ferguson is trying so hard to impose a lifetime ban on all my future political activity?
