Your City Council even approved pay raises as recent as March 26, 2020 during the pandemic. We have a spending problem not a revenue problem!

The current 20-21 fiscal year revised budget as of June 2020 is $34M Measure M would be expected to raise $12M.
That is a 35% tax increase on residents and businesses, adding to the hardships imposed by COVID-19.
In August of 2016, City Manager Christopher Boyd pledged;
"We will never go into debt, I can assure you that".
Well just a short 27 months (11/15/18) into his tenure as City Manager Christopher Boyd requested a $12,000,000 line of credit, which your City Council approved. Over the term of that loan the city will pay $9,000,000 in interest payments.
By the way the Citrus Heights City Council IS by design a citizen oversight committee, so as a result the "Citizen" oversight committee mentioned in Measure M would be a duplication of effort.
An independent survey of Citrus Heights merchants was conducted, 54% were against the increased sales tax, 36% were in favor, the rest were undecided.
Here are the No on M comments:
