North san Juan: vote yes on A and B

Would you vote to increase your property tax $2.25 a month to bring an 11-acre park to town? That’s the question of measures A and B in North San Juan.

After nine years of planning, a local committee landed $500,000, through the county, which gives NSJ control over part of the vacant Oak Tree School.

The site is paid for. We need a park district to keep it up. It includes a ball field, pond, two buildings, bathrooms, maintenance barn and water rights.

A parcel tax of $27 a year will establish a local NSJ park district and maintain the park. It’s like a half million dollar gift. All we have to do is maintain it.

NSJ – and “The Ridge” – has a reputation. It isn’t exactly a tourist destination. We do, however, have new businesses, talented volunteer firefighters, an artistic focus and an amazing natural setting. Let’s give a future to the next generation.

Will NSJ buck the national trend and tax them selves to create a local agency? I say, “Yes.”

One other guy, who isn’t a stranger to NSJ, is also on the ballot. Check out my video. Go to and enter: Jerry Brown Song
