Measure A continues critical County services without raising taxes.Measure A extends a 1/8th cent sales tax that generates $50 million annually to fund services our communities rely on every day.
With the uncertainty of federal funding from Washington, D.C., we must take steps to protect critical services for seniors, children, low-income families — all of us.
Yes on Measure A
Helps maintain high-quality programs at Valley Medical Center hospitals and clinics – used by almost 1 out of every 4 County residents – including ER, burn center, rehabilitation center, neo-natal intensive care, cancer care, and other trauma services.
Ensures funding for essential public safety services including combating gang violence, drugs, domestic violence, and domestic violence protection programs to keep our communities safe.
Funds public construction and maintenance, including roads, housing developments, and other capital projects, creating work for our construction industry.
Allows the County to offer affordable childcare and preschool for all children.
Allows Santa Clara County to fund innovative housing solutions for the homeless, which is far more cost-effective than emergency medical and health care or other services for the chronically homeless.
Funds mental health services for adults and children.
Allows the County to provide transit programs for seniors and the disabled.
Please join the health professionals, senior advocates, children service providers, law enforcement, business and labor organizations who are calling for Yes on Measure A to protect these vital services.
