Gas tax doesn’t help me or Val­ley

The Modesto Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The gas tax is a tax on those of us who need ve­hi­cles in our work here in the Cen­tral Val­ley be­ing as­sessed by the coastal elec­torate who is not af­fected by higher gas costs (other than the cost of ev­ery­thing trucked to them). It seems di­rected against ser­vice work­ers they em­ploy but who can’t af­ford to live in their com­mu­ni­ties. Tell me why I should vote for or against a tax that was en­acted by the state leg­is­la­ture? As a sup­porter of rep­re­sen­ta­tive gov­ern­ment, I am see­ing a bias against my in­ter­ests.
