Proposition 13, the California property tax–cap initiative passed 34 years ago on June 6, 1978. Stable funding for libraries hasn’t been the same since. I’m not saying the passing of Proposition 13 was a bad thing. What I am saying is that because of it, voters can now choose exactly where some of their property tax dollars go. By voting yes on Measure L, voters have the opportunity to say, “I support the El Dorado County Library. I want to provide my library with the stable funding base it needs to remain strong!” Measure L funds can only be used to improve and operate our libraries — guaranteed. Please visit the Yes on L Website welovethelibrary.org for all the information about this extremely important measure, and please vote Yes on Measure L.
