Our superstar government affairs duo at BOMA San Francisco, Ken Cleaveland and John Bozeman, penned an op/ed for the Bay City Beacon to counter the call for a split-roll tax on commercial properties.

Many people wonder what they can do to help fight split roll.  This is a good example.  Take the information that we have provided and localize it and get a local paper and/or blog to run it.

A big “thank you” on behalf of the industry to Ken and John for taking the initiative and getting this great article out into the public domain!

 “Those who live and work in our state support California values. It’s a fact – and especially true of those who own residential or commercial properties. Buying property in California means that you are investing in the future of the state’s residents and businesses within it. Like most investments, people want to ensure that their properties are taxed reasonably and responsibly and that local and state government entities are using those property taxes efficiently towards our shared values, e.g., education and local public services.”
