S.B. COUNTY REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS OPPOSES U
The San Bernardino County Chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus is opposing this tax. The RLCSB members debated and took positions on the November local ballot measures:
“NO Measure U- City of Yucca Valley 1% Sales Tax Increase Measure U would authorize a 1% sales tax on Yucca Valley citizens for 30 years. The unfortunate consequence of most local sales taxes is a shift of business away from local businesses to surrounding towns where the tax does not exist. This is extremely harmful to the local business economy, and may actually reduce the town revenue.” >>>>link here

YUCCA VALLEY REPUBLICAN WOMEN REMOVE PRO-MEASURE U FROM THEIR WEBSITE
The local Republican Women’s Club has not taken a stand against this General Fund Tax due to local political pressures. One YVRWF Board member has a vested interest in resolving her legacy of debt even though she ran on a No Tax platform. In a cleverly disguised “Press Release” the President (aka Webmaster) placed this pro-tax statement on their website without disclaimers, Board approval or General Membership approval. After contacting the State Republican Women Federated, I spoke with several members opposed to Measure U. This “Press Release” was scrubbed from their website without fanfare and now states a large disclaimer on each page.
