Ed and Nancy Franke’s letter in Tuesday’s Enterprise (“What is county doing about ‘fee?’) states the need for insight on the issues surrounding what can be done about the state’s “Fire Prevention Fee.” Time is of the essence, since payment and challenge of the charge must be postmarked within 30 days of the date on the taxpayer’s bill.

There is one public figure who has not only stated his opposition to the enacted “fee” as an illegal tax, he has also made detailed suggestions available to the public for methods to pay and to challenge the validity of this charge. Those detailed suggestions and appropriate forms can be reached at

    Or you could have the right thing and joined the Howard Jarvis taxpayers Association the minute the democrat legislature and democrat governor signed this illegal tax which does nothing to fund fire prevention but rather goes into the general funds where the democrat legislature and democrat governor will waste it on their union supports.

    BTW, I see the Calaveras County Democrat Committee has Chris Wright's mug on their page of who to vote for.

    Hmmm, I thought supervisorial races were non-partisian. Beware of wolfs in sheep's clothing.
