BRYSON VOTES TO SAVE TALEGA TAXPAYERS AN ADDITIONAL $17 MILLION
Refinancing of CFD will provide tax relief to 3,515 Homes
(LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA) – Demonstrating the importance of protecting taxpayers, Anna Bryson, recently voted to save Mission Viejo residents $42 million in taxes. Now, Anna Bryson, a small business owner and respected education reformer, announced additional taxpayer relief by making the motion and voting with the Capistrano Unified School District Board to transfer savings from the recent refinancing of the Talega Community Facilities Districts (CFD) to homeowners.
The savings in the refinance will be transferred to taxpayers in 3,515 homes for a total reduction of $17 million dollars in taxes over the life of the Bond statement. California School Boards hold the right of discretion on the dispersal of these savings.
When hearing about the recent vote, Laguna Niguel resident David Stine, a former 21 year veteran of the San Bernardino County School Board who also served as a teacher, administrator and Professor of Education at California State University San Bernardino, stated, “I am amazed to hear about the board returning $42 million to the taxpayers—this is extremely rare and I have almost never heard of this occurring.” Now, Talega taxpayers $17 million in savings are also in this special category.
“The time has come to relieve the burdens of extended taxation, let the homeowners use their money for their children and families,” commented Anna Bryson. “The board chose wisely last night”
As a trustee on the Capistrano Unified School District, Anna Bryson has been one of California’s leading education reformers, helping to balance the district’s budget while increasing educational excellence.
