Sales tax mailer upsets reader

To the City of Alameda:
In regard to the recently mailed flyer on funding “essential services,” your politically correct attitude and decisions that you assume we all agree with created these results. Decisions on sanctuary status, cameras, “Everyone is Welcome Here,” overloading and overcrowding; the total invasion of our Island led us here. This also leads to Alamedan’s police and fire departments and Alameda Hospital being overworked. 

Why is it that with extra apartments going up and suddenly million-dollar homes there is less tax revenue? After previous tax increases? Just where does the DMV and gas tax money go? They used to go to repair and maintain roads. 

We were a clean and safe Alameda. Nice, clean parks, beach and streets. Now, the city needs more money to return to what it was?
