Spokane group behind anti-levy fliers in Battle Ground
A retired tire store owner and conservative activist from the Spokane area is bankrolling a mailing urging Battle Ground voters to reject an April 23 school levy. The fluorescent yellow fliers from his Citizens for Responsible Taxation group hit Battle Ground mailboxes this week.
The group’s leadership is composed of retired tire store owner Duane Alton of Liberty Lake and Spokane residents John Beal and Marilyn Montgomery. Alton is listed as the group’s campaign manager; Montgomery is the group’s treasurer.
