Dear Mayor Samuels and Mr. Jones:
1. By what vote of the SABCA membership was $500 spent to contribute to a PAC to support the vote on an 8% sales tax increase?  
2. Please supply meeting minutes and agenda(s).
3. By what authority in the SABCA charter was such money spent?
4. Please supply the SABCA charter.
Thank you.
Ed Slavin
