Question for Treasurer candidate Telfer-
As a Bend City Councilor, you advocated and voted for the passage of Measure 37 in 2004. Measure 37 mandated that property owners may sue state or local government if they believe their property value is reduced by land use regulations.
As Treasurer, you’d be in charge of the state’s funds.
Do you still think that compensating landowners who claim their property value is reduced by land use regulations is a good use of taxpayer dollars?
And in an interview in 2002, when asked about the impact of such a measure, you said 'well, I guess the state would have to go bankrupt'. With such an attitude, can you really claim you're interested in public money?
