In 2001, some
neighbors formed a committee called the Hugo Political Action Committee(HPAC). The
HPAC is an ongoing committee that will exist for more than one year. The mission of
the HPAC is identified on its statement of organization (ID Number 00-98-PAC) filed with
the Josephine County Clerk's office and very similar to that of the HNA&HS.
involvement as defined by Oregon statewide goal 1.
Protect our farms and
forests as defined by Oregon statewide goals 3 and 4.
Protect our rural
quality of life.
Preserve our history.
Each year the Board of
Directors for our HPAC will determine if there are any ballot measures and/or candidates
in Josephine County that it wants to support through sponsorship and/or expenditures of
our available HPAC funds. The mission standards, as stated above, will be used to
determine that support. There is less chance of our candidates winning, or of our
ballot measures passing if our message can't get out (e.g. , in the purchasing of signs
and ads, etc.) The HPAC is asking for your financial support, and we wanted to let
you know that this support can be painless, ultimately not costing you a penny.
Here's how: If you know your total state income tax liability for the taxable year
will exceed $50 (or $100 for a couple filing jointly), you can make a $50/person
contribution to our PC and receive the total amount back in the form of a tax credit when
you file your state income tax return the next year. This is not a deduction, it is
a TAX CREDIT. For example, if your 2001 year state income tax liability is $350
filing jointly, and if you contribute $100 to the HPAC, your tax liability after the
credit would be only $250. In this example, if you had already paid the state the
$350 through payroll deductions, you actually get a $100 refund.
