Opinion: New tax in Mason City is just smoke and mirrors

Another magic act being brought to the stage by Bookmeyer and his cast of players. I am talking about the proposed River City Renunciation that is the latest wet dream of our lame duck Mayor.

Their current approach is to try and get you to believe they want to raise the levy against your home so they can buy lawnmowers and a special dunce hat to be distributed to the front door to every home in this city. If you don’t vote… or if you vote to allow this medicine man with his snake oil story to cover your house with aluminum siding… you should have your drivers license revoked.

In some of these small Iowa towns if you ran that scam the sherif would personally escort you to the city’s edge with a strong warning to never return. Eric Bookmeyer and his dancing clowns are not on your side… and never will be. You can take that to the voting booth.

Please get to the poll and VOTE NO!!
