Election 2016: Vote YES on Measure J in Sonoma Co.
UPDATE: Looking short of needed 66.67% with many ballots left to count.
This ½ cent sales tax will raise an estimated $95 million over the next 10 years to fund regional park maintenance and improvements. It will help address Sonoma County’s considerable park funding shortfall.
Specifically, Measure J will:
- Expand, maintain, and improve our parks for future generations
- Protect drinking water sources, streams, and rivers
- Protect natural areas
- Preserve fish and wildlife habitat
- Increase local trails
Measure J is supported by a broad array of organizations, including Greenbelt Alliance, LandPaths, Sonoma Land Trust, the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation, the Sierra Club, the North Bay Labor Council, the Sonoma County Democratic Party, and others.
Measure J will provide stable, locally-controlled funding to support Sonoma County’s parks and open space. It requires a 2/3 majority vote for approval, so we need your help to get the word out and help us win.
Greenbelt Alliance urges everyone in Sonoma County to vote YES on Measure J.
