As you may know, the Fountain Valley City Council is trying to raise the sales tax in their city, via Measure HH, which is on the ballot this November.

Thanks to Mayor Vo and Councilmembers Nagel, Collins and Brothers, everyone in Fountain Valley is paying more for trash collection services
There are six challengers and three incumbents running for the Fountain Valley City Council on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot.
Incumbent Mayor Michael Vo and longtime City Council Member John Collins recently joined with City Council Members Cheryl Brothers and Steve Nagel, in voting to give away a renewal for the city’s trash hauling to Rainbow Disposal WITHOUT a competitive bid. Rates went up. These same four had accepted campaign contributions this cycle from Rainbow as confirmed to us by the City Clerk.
Bidding this opportunity would have cost the city virtually nothing, and likely would have lowered rates instead of increasing them for an elderly population, many on fixed incomes. Clearly, the four voting to foster their political resumes, pump their campaign accounts and not serve their constituents need replacement. Fountain Valley has never bid this “evergreen” contract even tho Orange County has at least five other haulers which could readily compete for it.
