Con­trib­ute fairly

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - FROM THE COVER -

Re­gard­ing “A boon to empty-nesters that foes say is too costly” (Page One, Oct. 12): So older prop­erty own­ers, who have been pay­ing low prop­erty taxes for decades un­der Propo­si­tion 13, now want to trans­fer these ben­e­fits if they sell their homes and buy new ones any­where in Cal­i­for­nia? Don’t these in­di­vid­u­als care whether our state’s schools and other pub­lic ser­vices are ad­e­quately funded? If all that mat­ters to these empty-nesters is their own fi­nan­cial well-be­ing, then let them fly away to an­other state where there is a less dire need for tax­payer-funded ser­vices to which all cit­i­zens con­trib­ute fairly.
