No mention of any plan to spend money generated by new PCC bond in Columbia County.

The slick ad asking for my vote to support Portland Community College's bond arrived in the mail a few days before our property tax statement.

The ad states that the bond "would maintain the tax rate of $0.40 per $1,000 of assessed property value, for 16 years."

After a trip to the county courthouse and discovering that this vote is not to "maintain" the rate, but will instead be added to the current rate, I have decided to vote no. This ad was intended to deceive homeowners and others in order to obtain a yes vote, and therefore more of the taxpayers' cash.

In addition, this was filed in Multnomah County by PCC and there is no mention of any of a plan to spend this money in Columbia County.
