Resentment starting in Sebastopol and flaring up throughout Sonoma County on receipt of the 1946-47 county tax bills burst into a full-fledged Sonoma County Taxpayers’ Association. The taxpayers’ movement began in Sebastopol when the Employers’ Association authorized L.R. Hart, president, to call a public meeting for the formation of an association. Leaders of the group are L.R. Hart of Sebastopol and L.M. Meredith of Santa Rosa, with Meredith becoming chairman. Meredith stated, “Sonoma County is a five and a half million dollar business, and there is not one man on the Board of Supervisors with sufficient experience to handle a $5,500,000 annual business.” He stated that the association, eventually to be composed of 5,000 businessmen and property owners from the entire county, will devote its activities to assist the supervisors in the management of the business and to relieve the supervisors of the pressure placed upon them. “We are going to help the Board of Supervisors to say “NO!” The Supervisors have indicated that they are in favor of formation of the group.
