To the Editor:
The wording of the November ballot question, as published in the Boca Beacon on May 4, 2012, is most disturbing. It is shocking to think you have used such deceptive language for this ballot question.
The referendum is not a vote, “Yes: For bonds” or “No: Against Bonds” to finance the bridges. You should be asking forthrightly, do you, as a voter, approve a GIBA-levied ad valorem tax, not to exceed .3 mils, to secure a bond issue. Yes or no.
The deceptive wording you have chosen should not be acceptable to the state, counties or voters. It is a tactic that should gain the ire and disrespect it warrants.
