What Transportation Measure?
In the next several weeks, our elected officials are writing a measure for the November 2020 ballot to levy a sales tax for transportation funding in Sacramento County.
How You Can Help!
Go to sacta.org/a_board.html, find the name of your elected representative who sits on the board and call, email, text or ask them for a meeting.
– You don’t want more roads, but want more transit and safer streets for bicycling and walking.
– You won’t be fooled by a measure that funds the road project down the street (that your neighbor told the pollsters they like) but sacrifices the quality of our county’s future
– You will only support a transportation measure that moves our community to a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable future.
-This is most critical for those who live outside of the city of Sacramento, including in Citrus Heights, Arden Arcade, Folsom, Rancho Cordova, Elk Grove and North Highlands, etc.
– Please contact your representative now and voice your concerns. By February, it may be too late.
