AUGUSTA, Maine: Last week the state Ethics Commission launched an investigation into the South Portland City Council, after the Maine TABOR 2 campaign filed a complaint over a city decision to include a mailer with its property tax bills. The approved mailer urged citizens to oppose two ballot measures scheduled to appear on the November 3, 2009 ballot - Question 2 and Question 4.[1] "We were deeply concerned that the city was using taxpayers' money to not very subtly tell taxpayers how to vote on these two referenda," said David Crocker, Question 2 campaign chairman. The Ethics Commission said that they will consider a formal investigation on November 19, however, the city of South Portland is required to submit a written response by October 30, 2009.[2]
