No to ERS and IRS

We the people and ERS. We the people and IRS.

They both need more revenue, they will always need more revenue. They need more because they can't manage what there is or was.

Look at the Eagle Police Department. They have over 10 cop units (Jeeps and cars). We have the sheriff's department to the east and the state patrol to the west. But the public sector needs more revenue. Look at the money spent on the jail. Look at the mill levy on your tax bill for the fire department, and across the board pay raises to the town employees. That would not have been done if the money had come directly out of the three stooges pockets.

We the people: Notice the sewer and water prices have gone up. More revenue. We don't need more infrastructure built if there is no ERS.

Have you ever asked why Eagle did not annex the airport and Gateway? Gypsum said "Thank you, town of Eagle." Revenue right out the window by impudent town management. They don't know good when it is a gift. The revenue from ERS will mostly go to the developers' pocket, so the developer can get all its money back.

We the people: Vote no and we will begin to stop this stealing. More money will not help a failing system, both local or federal
