    MARSH TAX LACKS SUPPORT

    in News

    Mayor Marsh wants community leaders to put pressure on his city Council to support a ½% sales tax in the next election.


    Marsh claims that 80 to 90% of the tax will be spent on public safety. Surely the pressure on the Council will come from the Modesto Police Union, whose mission is to obtain more money, better benefits, and job protection.


    Given the choice between more money and more officers the unions have historically selected more money.


    Two years ago, former Mayor Carmen Sabatino headed the “NO 0N MEASURE X” campaign and spent $3000.00 to defeat the measure while the Mayor’s supporters spent over $178,000 in a failed attempt to pass the tax.


    Measure X failed because the people got it, they understood that giving seven people on the City Council $26 million a year to spend as they pleased was not a good idea.


    Now he wants only want $14 million and claims it is just for public safety.


    Termed out Councilman Dave Lopez, who has been a cheerleader on the Council and accomplished little else opposes the tax.


    Marsh and Lopez cannot explain what they did with $25 million of federal funds for the neighborhood stabilization program.


    The city received 10% or 2.5 million to administer and supervise the federal money. Then, Mayor Jim Ridenour, claims he didn’t know anything about SCAP and it wasn’t his business how much they paid their executives.


    The newspaper at the time distracted the community with the reports on SCAP, which was really a small part of the larger scandal that forced bee editor Mark Vasche to tell the Bee publisher that he had a conflict and could no longer participate in any meetings to discuss the scandal.


    There are many other examples that lead to the logical conclusion that Marsh should not ask for any more money until he reveals what’s been done with the money they have already been given.

    Pre-Call Planning is the Key to Sales Call Success

    in Business

    Lively discussion with Lisa Magnuson:  Pre-Call Planning your Single Source for Prospecting Success


    When was the last time your team closed a seven-figure deal?  Despite the best sales talent, many high potential, big contracts either get whittled down, end up stalled, or are lost completely.  Large, strategic accounts are complex and require a very different approach to identify, develop and win.  Can you afford to chase smaller opportunities at the expense of bigger deals that can exponentially change your company’s growth curve?


    Top Line Sales has a proven track record of guiding account teams to land larger deals.  We’re proud to have enabled our clients to land over $100 million in new contracts.  We are not simply advice-givers - we work side-by side with your account executives, running deal war rooms, applying just-in-time expertise, tools and live deal coaching where it counts: in the field.

    Tax Expert John Gaver Dissects the Rubio/Lee Tax Plan

    in Politics

    Our highly-respected guest this Wednesday, March 11, is John Gaver, author of “ The Rich Don’t Pay Tax … Or Do They?” and hundreds of well-researched and documented articles on the real effects of taxation on real Americans. In this week’s episode, John takes apart the tax reform proposition of Senators Marco Rubio and Mike Lee. At the core of the discussion is the following quote from Gaver’s blog post on the subject: “Based on its hugely preferential treatment of big businesses, over small businesses, the Rubio/Lee tax plan must have been written by lobbyists for some of the nation’s largest businesses.” Read the entire article here: http://therichdontpaytax.com/blog/, and bring your questions and comments to the show.
