I am asking all residents of San Bernardino County to say “no” on your (Fire Protection zone FP-5) protest form that all homeowners should have received in the mail as a public notice. SBC Fire Chief Mark Hartwig promised (the protest forms) would be mailed out to all homeowners in the county. The problem is the protest form that you need to send back if you disagree with the tax was not mailed with the public notice.
Now keep in mind, they pay a bulk postage fee, so why did they leave out the protest form?
Chief Hartwig was not truthful and did not tell all the county residents at all of these meetings throughout the county that the protest form would not be included in the packet. Can you really trust what he said about the proposed expansion of Fire Protection Zone 5?
This fire tax is a sham and you should call Supervisor James Ramos at (909) 387-4855 or email to email@example.com to express your concern. If you have Internet service, as a lot of our rural residents may not have. And many of these residents are older and if they have Internet may not know how to use it. Real convenient for getting this past.
You need to voice your protest vote, and send Chief Hartwig back to the drawing board.
