We congratulate the voters and the City Council on Measure O passing.
Many people voted against this measure. That opposition was never about the extra tax money that could benefit our City. Instead, it was about the lack of trust in how this government would spend the money.
Citizens’ Oversight Committee Promised
Our opposition forced the proponents to promise that a citizens’ committee would oversee how the city spends this money.
Will city government keep that promise? Will the candidates keep their promise? Or, will the money flow toward the special interests that spent so much to get you to approve this new tax?
We’ll Monitor Measure O Closely For You
Proponents promised clear accountability for how city officials spend the money.
We promise we will try to insure the city spends the money as it promised. The 18,581 people that voted against the measure deserve to know that much.
