Being Taken for a Ride
Kim Lefner and Ian Smith
Some things never change. Take for example the continuous attempts by elected officials and their unelected staff to part you from your hard-earned money.
As if paying the highly inflated price of $205,000 per acre for the “RMV Riding Park” (previously appraised at $57,000 per acre) wasn’t enough, we continue to pay for costly “improvements” to this property with little obvious benefit to SJC taxpayers.
Forget that we don’t know where the money is coming from to pay for these “improvements”. History shows that if the Ranch wants it, our city council inevitably complies – with SJC taxpayer dollars, of course.
