Pros & Cons on Sales Tax to Fund Local Transportation Projects. This November Santa Cruz County voters will decide whether or not to pass Measure D, the "Safety, Pothole Repair, Traffic Relief, Transit Improvement Measure." You'll hear from representatives on both sides of the issue and have an opportunity to ask questions about the measure.

Measure D proposes a 30-year half-cent sales tax that would raise an estimated $500 million for local transportation improvements. It would fund neighborhood projects such as local road repair, Highway 1 improvements including the addition of lanes in parts of Aptos and Soquel, transit for seniors and disabled people, the coastal rail trail, railroad maintenance, and an analysis of rail as a transit option.

Casey Beyer of "Get Santa Cruz County Moving" will speak in favor of the measure. Rick Longinotti of "The Campaign for Sensible Transportation" will speak against the measure.

This free public event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Santa Cruz County.

Look for more details in the September issue of the LWVSCC VOTER newsletter coming soon.
