Breaking News: Google’s HQ City Advances After Company Backlash Triggers Seattle, Cupertino to Pull Back From Questionable ‘Head Tax’
The Mountain View City board approved a procedure for voter factor to consider of a staff member “head tax,” a week after neighboring Cupertino, CA chose to delay factor to consider of a comparable referendum for a minimum of a year.
Mountain View leaders late Tuesday all voted to embrace the procedure placing a company license tax of between $9 and $150 per worker on the Nov. 6 tally. With Google and other large companies paying the greatest rate, the measure would raise about $6 million a year for programs to deal with traffic gridlock and skyrocketing real estate expenses.
“We keep couching this as a Google tax, but it’s actually a company license [fee] upgrade. It hasn’t been raised in 30 years,” said council member Ken Rosenberg.
Google, the city’s biggest company, would create $3.3 million annually; more than half of the total raised by the city’s first business license tax boost given that 1954. Mountain View’s current $30 flat tax is among the lowest in the San Francisco Bay Location.
The council prepares to invest about 80 percent of the profits on efforts to improve traffic congestion. In a buddy effort to raise profits, the council likewise authorized a ballot procedure enforcing a 9 percent tax on gross invoices of cannabis-related organisations.
Mountain View Vice Mayor Lisa Matichak urged the city to authorize a more modest flat tax proposed by the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce.

Google’s staff member count has soared from 10,000 to more than 23,000 over the past years during the tech boom. The internet search giant has declined to comment on the proposed tax, similar to Apple’s radio silence about Cupertino’s now-shelved head tax measure.
The Silicon Valley Leadership Council, the Chamber of Commerce and other business leaders slammed the Mountain View procedure as a tax on jobs that could induce large business to move away or broaden somewhere else.
Seattle’s approval of a head tax in May triggered an earthquake in the Emerald City that rippled down the West Coast and influenced comparable efforts in Silicon Valley’s Cupertino and Mountain View, cities also facing the repercussions of fast tech sector growth.

Seattle leaders, confronted with ballot information revealing opponents would likely succeed in certifying and passing a November referendum beating the tax, voted to rescind the procedure June 12.
A week later, Cupertino last Tuesday shelfed a tally measure that would have imposed approximately $31.6 million in yearly per-employee taxes on Apple, the city’s largest company. The action left Mountain Deem the only Silicon Valley city standing to consider a head tax procedure for inclusion on the Nov. 6 tally.

LOS ANGELES– For all their talk of a “blue wave,” Democrats require a good day Tuesday in California to have much hope of taking your house bulk this fall.
No state will play a more substantial function in the fight for control of Congress. And with main elections across California and seven other states on Tuesday, the political battleground will soon be set for the very first midterm elections of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Recognizing the high stakes, Trump looked for to stimulate his advocates in a series of tweets praising his favored California Republican prospects.
“In High Tax, High Criminal Activity California, make sure to obtain out and elect Republican politician John Cox for Governor. He will make a BIG difference!” Trump tweeted.
Yet nightmare circumstances exist for both celebrations.
Because of California’s uncommon main system, Trump’s celebration faces the humiliating prospect of not certifying any prospect for the guv’s race or the United States Senate. Democrats, on the other hand, could be shut out of a handful of competitive Home races due to the fact that they ran a lot of main prospects and diluted their vote.
California tops a list of eight states with primary contests Tuesday from Montana to Mississippi and New Mexico to New Jersey.
With the possibility of a Democratic wave on the horizon, the elections will evaluate citizen enthusiasm, prospect quality and Trump’s influence as each party selects its nominees to face off in November.
Francine Karuntzos, a 57-year-old senior citizen from Huntington Beach, California, said she has deep issues about the Republican president– particularly his recent declaration that he might pardon himself. She said she isn’t really a member of a political party, however she voted Democratic on Tuesday.
“I’m actually, really worried about our Constitution being messed up by this presidency,” Karuntzos stated after casting her tally at a regional recreation center.
Across the country in Montclair, New Jersey, Lynnette Joy Baskinger, a psychotherapist, stated she’s fed up with the GOP.
“I still consider myself an independent, however I just will not vote Republican because of exactly what’s going on,” she stated.
It was a different story in Mississippi, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn’t sure which Republican she would support in the state’s Senate primary, however she wants whoever wins to securely support Trump.
The president “touches my heart,” she said.
While several states had competitive primaries on Tuesday, none will be more consequential in the fight for congressional control than California, which features 7 Republican seats in districts won by Democratic governmental candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. No other state includes more than 3.
Yet the state’s uncommon election laws complicate things for both sides.
Under California’s system, all prospects appear on a single main ballot, with the top 2 vote-getters despite party advancing to the November election. That enables the possibility of 2 prospects from the exact same celebration qualifying.
That’s precisely what could take place in California’s marquee races for Senate and guv, where Republicans fear the prospect of being ended the basic election ballot completely.
In the race to succeed term-limited Democrat Jerry Brown, 2 Democrats, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, are leading the pack. For the GOP, the Trump-backed Cox, an organisation executive, has the very best chance at making a spot.
It’s likewise possible Republicans might not secure an election spot in the obstacle against 84-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is expected to easily win first place in her primary. 2nd location is far less particular.
On the other hand, Democrats might be locked out in a handful of Home races, which would be an enormous blow to the party’s fight to declare your home bulk this fall. The celebration must wrest at least 23 seats from Republican hands.
National Democrats have actually invested more than $7 million attempting to suppress and repair the damage inflicted by Democrats attacking each other in districts opened by retiring Republican Reps. Ed Royce and Darrell Issa, and the district where Republican Dana Rohrabacher is dealing with difficulties from the left and the right.
That’s money the Democrats would have preferred to invest promoting their prospects this fall.
Trump also urged Republican politicians to support the party’s congressional prospects, because of Democrats’ increased chances of taking your home, where GOP retirements have made such a changeover more likely in the past year.
“Keep our nation from the hands of High Tax, High Criminal Offense Nancy Pelosi,” Trump tweeted, referring to Home Minority Leader Pelosi of San Francisco.
There are other sort of drama playing out in other parts of the nation.
In New Jersey, Sen. Bob Menendez is expected to become the Democratic Celebration’s candidate for a 3rd term regardless of being polluted by a hung jury in his current federal bribery trial. Republicans wish to use the fallout to tar other Democrats in the state, consisting of those combating to beat vulnerable GOP incumbents in rural districts.
In Montana, Republicans will pick a candidate to take on Democratic Sen. Jon Tester, who is amongst the most susceptible Democratic senators in the country. The GOP had a hard time to hire top-tier candidates, leaving the most likely candidates as state Auditor Matt Rosendale or retired Judge Russ Fagg.
Democrats have actually intended their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, taking on his background in Maryland and concerns about his experience as a rancher.
Governors’ races will likewise take shape Tuesday in Alabama, Iowa, South Dakota and New Mexico, where Republicans most of the times are combating to show their loyalty to Trump.
Tuesday’s contests include one in South Dakota, where Rep. Kristi Noem’s quote to end up being the state GOP’s very first female candidate for guv has opened the only House seat.
It might be a while prior to all of Tuesday’s contests are decided, particularly in California.
The state allows absentee tallies to be sent by mail through primary day, indicating it’ll likely be days prior to the last votes are counted.
Democratic strategists wish to see brand-new proof of an anti-Trump backlash, particularly in rural districts across New Jersey and California, where lots of voters have soured on the Republican president.
Associated Press writers Amy Taxin in Huntington Beach, Sophia Bollag in Sacramento, David Porter in Montclair, New Jersey, and Kevin McGill in Picayune, Mississippi, contributed to this report.
1. Guns N’ Roses’ former reputation for extreme tardiness (which was primarily just lead singer Axl Rose’s reputation) has turned into something like extreme punctuality, however plenty of fans plainly were surprised when the band took the stage simply 15 minutes after the program’s listed start time, with no opening act. The empty seats rapidly filled up, though, and Rose and his bandmates bet a marathon (and rather exhausting) three and a half hours, ending ideal around the time among their shows might have drawn back in the ’90s.
2. The last time GNR remained in town, in April 2016, it was for the kick-off of the still-running Not in This Lifetime semi-reunion tour, bringing Rose back together with fellow original members Slash (guitar) and Duff McKagan (bass), together with bandmates who have actually been working with Rose considering that Slash and McKagan left. That program was excellent, but the band has actually clearly gotten tighter since then, as well as increasing its endurance, sounding excellent from the first notes of “It’s So Easy” through the last notes of “Paradise City,” the older members fitting together seamlessly with the later additions.
3. Also back in April 2016, Rose was recovering from a broken foot and carried out the entire program sitting down, however this time he nearly never stopped moving, as well as with all the effort, his voice still sounded great. Rose’s regular (as in, almost each song) mid-show breaks have become part of his mystique, however whatever he does backstage every few minutes to revitalize himself, it deserves it if it enables him to wail through epics like “Separated” and “Coma” sounding almost as powerful as he did 25 years ago.
4. 3 and a half hours left a lot of space for a variety of product, including six tunes from 2008 pre-reunion album Chinese Democracy, which were boosted a bit by remarkable lead guitar work from Slash, but there was just a lot he could provide for plodding dirges like “Prostitute” and “Sorry.” A minimum of punchy rockers “Better” and the album’s title track have semi-decent hooks.
5. The band also included a whole lot of covers– from GNR hits like Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Pass Away” and Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” to show staples like The Who’s “The Hunter” and Pink Floyd’s “Desire You Were Here” (an instrumental with dueling guitar solos from Slash and Richard Fortus). The holdover tributes to Glen Campbell (“Wichita Lineman”) and Chris Cornell (“Great Void Sun”) were fascinating left-field tune choices, but felt a little out of location, particularly since they were presented without comment. Surely there are at least some classic pictures of the band members socializing with Cornell that could have been displayed on the video screens?
