1A: No risks, high rewards

Dear Editor:

Referendum 1A will not raise taxes. Participation is completely voluntary.


• Property owners will have a chance to borrow money for Energy Smart improvements through a special assessment on their property tax bills.

• Cost savings per property realized each year will be similar to the increase in tax bill due to improvements.

• Energy use and emission reduction.

• Smart employment opportunities for construction workers.


• Hmmm.

This will happen only if we vote it in.

Please join me in voting yes on this important and delightful ballot issue.
