Why vote NO on Measure C?
Broken Roads, Broken Promises, and Higher Taxes
Measure C is a 1/2 cent sales tax you will pay for the next 30 years. It was written behind closed doors by the same politicians and bureaucrats who, for 35 years, have failed to keep their promises for safer roads and clean air.
Measure C is a $7 billion politicians' tax
After paying BILLIONS in Measure C taxes, nearly two-thirds of all Fresno County roads are STILL in fair, poor or in very poor condition. Fresno City and County politicians voted to use taxpayer dollars meant to fix broken roads to support political campaign efforts. What would be different this time around?
Measure C cuts funding for safe routes to school and fails the safety of our children and cyclists
In the last 30 years, Measure C has not improved our bike lanes and pedestrian safety, and it has failed our children with no improvements to safe routes to school. Fresno ranks 10th nationwide for the most dangerous roads for pedestrians.
Measure C makes it harder to pay for basic needs.
Inflation is hard enough on families already. And now politicians want more of our money to do more of the same. Measure C will just make it harder to pay for basic needs.
Measure C ignores our needs and makes our air worse.
Measure C does not provide the transportation system we need for our future. It fails to meet the needs of Fresno County residents and will make our air quality even worse. Measure C cuts public transportation in half, leaves neighborhoods with broken streets and sidewalks, and forces our kids to use unsafe routes to school.
Measure C fails workers.
We cannot afford to pay higher taxes for a political slush fund that doesn’t even guarantee local workers jobs and training programs.
