Welcome to the MCTA

The MCTA is a grassroots non-partisan citizens group whose purpose is to oppose the ever-increasing appetite of our local governments for our hard-earned tax dollars. 

The MCTA will be actively opposing the Mehlville School District's PROPOSITION C. Prop C will raise our real estate and personal property taxes by 25 percent! (88 cents per $100 of assessed valuation)
PROPOSITION C allows the Board of Education to spend this huge tax increase on anything they want. Only 1 cent of the 88-cent levy MUST be spent on construction. The largest expenditure will be raising employee salaries and benefits to the “county median” of union scale. Big raises for the bureaucrats mean big bills for us! 

We will be announcing a public town hall forum very shortly and have formed a campaign committee to oppose this unprecedented transfer of wealth to local public employees.
The MCTA urges you to donate to our efforts to defeat PROPOSITION C. Make checks payable to the MCTA and send them to:
