To: Owners of property in the Downtown Community Benefit District
From: Carmen Sabatino, Mayor of Modesto 2000-2004
I am seeking a second term as Mayor of Modesto and I want you to know that I will be seeking the repeal of the assessment fees the present Council has agreed to have imposed on you. The money is going to a group of private individuals who have formed a nonprofit to run their NEW CITY.
Sixty-one per cent of voting owners voted against the district, and yet this assessment district was formed. The City and County provided 14.5% of the yes vote.
To put it bluntly, owners were “scammed” with the process that left little doubt of the election outcome.
