Another misleading anti-Amendment 1 mailer




The Florida League of Cities has bankrolled a new anti-Amendment 1 mailer that went out over the weekend. The mailer suggests the proposal is a boon for out of staters (who apparently resemble the cheeseball pictured above) while giving Floridians a "raw deal." Second home and business owners would get a 10 percent assessment cap, but that is expected to do little in a depressed or normal real estate market. In fact, most of Amendment 1's benefit goes to those who already enjoy the greatest protection - Florida homeowners.

The flier was sent out by Citizens for Home Rule, a PAC funded by the Florida League of Cities.
