The County Attorney has prepared the following title and summary of the chief purpose and points of the
proposed measure: Title: An Initiative to Repeal the Del Norte County Transactions and Use Ordinance.

sales tax in the unincorporated area of the County. This initiative would repeal that ordinance.
NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE INITIATIVE PETITION
Notice is hereby given by the person whose name appears hereon of their intention to circulate the
petition within Del Norte County for the purpose of submitting an initiative measure to a vote of the
people.
TEXT OF INITIATIVE: A statement of reasons of the proposed action as contemplated in the petition
is as follows: This measure was placed on the November 3, 2020, ballot by the Board of Supervisors
establishing a 1% sales tax.

We’re already taxed to death with some of the highest taxes in the nation.
Our local politicians don’t know when to stop. Tax Busters needs to deal with
reality. Animal Control is not an emergency. 2. Our roads are on a par with 3rd world countries. We’re not seeing any repairs being done. 3. Former CAO Sarina said no Measure R funds would be used for salary and benefits. This is far from the truth as dozens and dozens have been hired.

The name of the proponent: /s/ Bonnie Brown
