Vote NO on Measure M!

Measure M is a County Measure that would force the County to spend about $18-21 million per year (according to SB County Auditor-Controller's Office) to maintain County roads at the level of maintenance they are at on June 3rd. This is not about fixing roads you use, County roads don't include the 101 or city streets, but rather about spending money on roads, regardless of how many people use those roads or the costs. The Measure's Sponsor, Supervisor Peter Adam, has not provided any funding plans so the County will likely have no choice but to make cuts to core services, such as the Sheriff and other Public Safety programs or County Clinics and other Health and Human Services programs. Even if our roads are in crisis, pushing our County into a budget crisis will not help. Join us in voting No!
