Under protest

By From page A5 | August 21, 2013

EDITOR:

Gentlemen of the State Board of Equalization,

For a second time I am forced to pay the Cal Fire fee under drastically stronger protest. It is genuinely sad and frustrating to have my government reach into my life savings. I am retired and now forced to lower my modest and self-supported standing of living because our public employees cannot perform the same services for the same funds available two years ago.

I have lived in California all of my adult life and I had learned to really love this state. It is discouraging and disheartening to see and be forced to participate in the slow degeneration of a previously admired lifestyle. Perhaps Cal Fire should do as I must now do. That is to perform on a smaller budget.
