The Peace and Freedom Party Sacramento County Central Committee has decided to support one and oppose three measures on the November ballot in Sacramento County.
• Measure A: the Roads and Air Quality Sales Tax Initiative
While this measure provides money for needed causes, sales taxes are regressive and fall heavily on workers and the poor. Vote NO on Measure A.
• Measure B: the Marijuana Tax for Homeless Services Measure
Another bad tax for a good purpose. Cannabis is already taxed too much. Vote NO on Measure B.
• Measure D: the Low-Income Housing Measure
Even though this measure only “authorizes” the government to act on development of low-income housing, we support it anyway. Now let’s pressure government actually to do something! Vote YES on Measure D.
• Measure O: Homeless Persons Shelter and Encampment Measure
One part is good, and three or four parts are bad. Housing, drug, and mental health services are needed, but certainly not more “enforcement.” The cons outweigh the pros. Vote NO on Measure O.
