County Measure N, supposedly, is for a new tax to prevent cuts to my fire department. The proceeds will be placed in the county general fund. Zayante, Boulder Creek, Ben Lomond and Felton fire departments will get no money from this tax. I am voting no.

Eric Moore, Felton

n Editor’s note: Measure N is an additional transient occupancy tax of 1.5 percent, charged to those staying in lodgings in unincorporated Santa Cruz County,  [mel1] whose proceeds would go into the Santa Cruz County general fund.

I for one would like to know what the "general fund" actually does for us...

Pension funding, waste, cronyism. The usual.
