Published! Letter to Editor on Gas Tax

I find the Acorn’s letters to the editor extremely informative. I thank the citizens who take the time to observe and report what is going on at our city council meetings. With respect to the (Thousand Oaks) city’s desire to increase our sales tax to fund transportation I’d like to understand in sufficient detail why the new state gas tax would not fund our transportation projects.

Please allow our city council to explain their concern. It is worrisome to me that a sales tax could be diverted to other city expenditures. A sales tax is forever and that is of deep concern to all of us. Is it possible to have our representatives elaborate?
