Nearly 1 million signatures filed for initiative to strike Prop. 13’s ‘moving penalty’

Backers of a statewide initiative aimed at expanding Prop. 13 for senior homeowners have submitted almost a million signatures to election officials, more than enough to qualify the measure for next November’s ballot, the California Association of Realtors, the initiative’s principal backer, has announced.

Now election officials must verify the petitions to make sure they contain the required 585,000 voter signatures needed to place the measure on the November 2018 ballot.

If approved, the Prop. 13 “portability” measure would allow homeowners who are 55 or older to take their low property tax base with them after selling their home and buying a new home anywhere in the state. There would be no limit on how many times they can use the provision and no limit on home prices (although buying a more expensive home would result in a slightly higher “blended” tax assessment).

Under current law, senior homeowners can take their low Prop. 13 tax base with them only once, only to one of 11 California counties and only if the new home costs the same or less than the one sold.

Under Prop. 13, the landmark constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1978, property tax hikes are capped at 2 percent per year so long as a resident owns the home. But there’s a one-time reassessment for the new owner to market values after the home is sold. The measure has kept homeowners’ property taxes artificially low over the years, even as their home values have doubled or even quadrupled

Supporters say the initiative will ease the state’s housing crisis by freeing up more properties for sale. Many older homeowners who want to move have been staying put to avoid paying higher property taxes.

Although the initiative wouldn’t address capital gains taxes, another deterrent to home sales, it still will help the housing crisis “in a small way,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, Prop. 13’s original backer.

“That will have an effect of opening up larger homes to younger families so older empty nesters aren’t trapped in bigger houses,” Coupal said.

The initiative’s expanded “portability” provisions also would apply to severely disabled homeowners and disaster victims.

“Voters believe that homeowners who are seniors, disabled or victims of disasters deserve the opportunity to move to safer, more practical homes without being penalized,” said state Realtor association President Steve White. “We are excited to have reached this milestone. … We have the resources and grassroots strength to eliminate the property tax moving penalty.”

The suspect, Mike Patrick Thomas of Tustin, is suspected to have made inappropriate contact with an underage girl, including text messages and conversations, an Orange County Sheriff’s Department release said.

During its investigation, the Sheriff’s Department discovered Thomas had been accused of similar activity a few years ago, the release said. No arrest was made in that prior incident.

The department’s investigation is ongoing.

Given his connection to the cheerleading booster club, investigators believe there may be more victims and are seeking additional information. Anyone with information on possible victims can call investigators at 714-647-7064.

Sadly – The 34th Annual – “I just wanted to Get the Fuck Out of Tustin” – Chili Cook-Off Hybrid Gay Pride Parade – World’s Largest Alcoholics Anonymous Recruitment – Jesus Loves You Revival and Uber Taxpayer Cluster-Fuck – “I will not be attending ever again.” – will be held on Sunday June 3 2018 – Like It or Not

Tustin, California –

Editorial –

Essentially this is Businesses – Jesus Freaks and City Hall – Helping Each Other Make Sure that No One Ever Comes Back to Tustin California for – Anything – Ever.

Many Businesses along the Street Fair Route at the Chili Cook-off are Locking their Doors and Hanging a Closed Sign – because they’re tired of the Drunks and other Losers wandering around – coming in and wanting to use their Restroom and Trashing the Sidewalks with Litter and Human Excrement.

You won’t need to worry about any DUI checkpoints though – becasue the Fat Tustin Cops and other City Employees that aren’t working on Overtime and Pension Spiking – will be Drinking – and they don’t want to have to Arrest themselves or otherwise get caught.

“Fullerton city manager Joe Felz – smelled of booze – lost control of his car – taking a sidewalk – crashing into a small tree – before skidding back on the street”

The only ones who benefit from this event are City of Tustin Employees who are getting paid and on overtime – and spiking their pensions – for doing everything involved in this fiasco – set-up – traffic control – policing – clean-up and tear down when it’s all over.

Taxpayers are the Biggest Losers on this Deal.

If you own a business on the route “Close” and take the day off – if you’re planning on attending – Don’t.

Der Wienerschnitzel always has the best Chili in Town and they’re Open Every Day. –

“I have been to this event a few times over the last 10-15 years, most recently being on Sunday June 7, 2015.

I am all about street fairs, day drinking, and eating good food. We got there at about 11am and lucked out with parking in the center nearby for free. Walked in, and had friends that were at Black Marlin, so I went to locate them…that place was packed. And it became a hangout later in the day as well. Just go there and ignore the dumb cook-off.

Got in line for tickets…WHAT A HASSLE!!! They are cash only, which is not posted. So, I got to wait in that line twice. The differentiate between the beer tickets and the chili tickets, so you have to plan in advance an decide how you want to divvy your tickets up. Which ends up with exactly what they want…you buy tickets that you end up not using. And then there’s places that serve food with more substance, that don’t take tickets, only cash. WTF. SO DAMN ANNOYING.

I had 2 thimbles of chili. And it was not exciting. Tons of places were OUT OF CHILI at 12pm? Is that not the whole goddam point of this event? And, the beer table was out of service too, so I wandered around looking for another one most of the time, whilst having beer and chili spilled on me from people who managed to get chili before it ran out, and beer before the tap malfunction.

I tried to sell my tickets to people in line before I left so I could recoup some of my money. People thought I was trying to run some sort of scam. LOL. I just wanted to Get the Fuck Out of Tustin!!! and get back some of the $40 I wasted on tickets.

I left after 2 hours, and I wanted to leave after 30 minutes. I wasted my money. It was not fun.

In the past it was not such a cluster-fuck.

I only went because I was in town to visit my sister and it happened to coincide with a friends birthday and she was planning to be at the Chili Cook Off, so I went. It is not at all worth the drive from San Diego. I don’t think it was worth the drive from Costa Mesa, to be honest.

I will not be attending ever again.”

“There were a lot of police walking the fair” –  [Editors Note] – Police on Overtime Pay and Pension Spiking (Caution Taxpayer Cluster-Fuck Here) – Dave

“The vast majority of the offerings were simply based on #10 cans of Hormel, Stag, or U.S. Foods chili with some minimal additives presumably there to “customize” the recipe”

“What a cluster-fuck”

“Alcohol wristbands $2”

“But WTF, NONE of the chili’s I tried were that great.  In fact, some of them were just bad.  Very disappointing! ”

“And, the most disturbing part was that somewhere, someone or some booth was handing children balloons with a large JESUS LOVES YOU screen printed on them.”
