NOTICE OF INTENT TO CIRCULATE INITIATIVE PETITION Notice is hereby given by the person whose name appear hereon of their intention to circulate the petition within the Crescent Fire Protection District located in Del Norte County for the purpose of submitting an initiative measure to the vote of the people.  A Statement of Reasons of the proposed action as contemplated in the petition is as follows: Voters of the Crescent Fire Protection District Resolution No. 21-001 dated March 8 20212 approved the increase by less than 1 vote or $17.80 and adopted on July 12, 2021.  YES votes 50.01% and NO votes 49.99%. * Currently we have high unemployment, high poverty, high taxes, high gas prices, and inflated food costs making it harder economically to exist. *While having fire protection is important, this tax was not thought out very well.  This tax has no sunset clause.  But it does have a cost of living increase built in.  It also contains language to pay three (3) fire chiefs and one (1) captain all with six (6) figure incomes. * Many people did not receive their ballots including, unbelievably, Crescent City Harbor.  The Harbor now has a lawsuit against the Fire District. * This was not passed by popular vote, but rather won by 1/4 of a vote equating to $17.80 after giving multi-family property owners weighted ballots!  Instead of paying $74 per year per property, multi property owners get a reduced rate per property equaling $1,000 flat fee.  In one instance that means a discount of over $8,130! * The Fire Protection District boats of going out on more calls, but the majority of those calls are not even fire related! * We have learned from the Citizen's Oversight Committee that the $25 million dollar School Bond does not protect the taxpayer's money.  The Del Norte Unified School District is currently under investigation by an outside organization.  Findings substantiate that the Oversight Committee has not operated in an INDEPENDENT and LEGAL capacity since it's inception 12 years ago.  Problems with Oversight Committees continue through the area.  Name of Proponent:  /s/ Linda Sutter.  To be placed on the June 2022 ballot and repealed.  T334283
