Carol Warren tells you she won't increase taxes but history shows us she works to increase taxes. She have voted in favor of local Stanton taxes on basic needs like clothing, tap water, electricity, gas, phones, gas for our cars, etc.
Utility Tax - Did not keep her promise of 'no new taxes'. Instead voted to place a 50% increase on our ballot in June 2012. She put another tax on our ballot in 2014 too.
Business Retention - Promised to be business friendly but in 8 years a plan has not been produced. Visual observation has shown more businesses closed on Beach Blvd. and around the city. Some highlights include the closure of Ralphs Grocery, 2 Albertsons, Sizzler, Freshia, Red Robin and what used to be major shopping centers are now almost completly vacant. This reduces our sales tax base. She has no plan to turn this around.
Unemployment - We still have one of the highest unemployment rates out of all Orange County cities and she has not created a plan to turn this around in 8 years.
Safety Services - Cut funding to our Sheriff and Fire departments leading to less sworn officers, crime supression and fire personel. Our taxes didn't go down but our safety services did. She has no plan to turn this around.
Other - Sent mailers and made phone calls to promote the utility tax increase and television programming tax. If it were up to her a family of 5 would be paying around $500 a year on the city utility tax and cell phone tax combined.
