"Historically the City of Santa Clara has done a wonderful job managing city funds. Much of what you mentioned exemplifies this. The State of CA on the other hand has done an awful job. They simply keep raising taxes, just like the federal government. So sad, in fact it seems criminal to me. Can citizens do anything to stop the state? I feel they are stealing our funds."

"Please keep me informed about City revenues and what we can do to support our City!"

"I've lived in Santa Clara for over 30 years. I choose to live in Santa Clara because it takes care of the city and its people. I support whatever needs to be done to stop the state from using our city funds because they can't budget. Please include me when distributing information about the State's raid on City assets. I strongly support the Council and Staff efforts to resist further State action to transfer City property and revenues."
