Measure A is more than an $18 billion tax increase, it is a burden on San Diego families and our community – the final cost of which is still unknown. Medical bills from increased air and water pollution, environmental damage and wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars are all serious risks posed by this proposal. That’s why the people of San Diego are saying “No Way to Measure A.”
Elected officials, business leaders, public health advocates, working families and environmentalists are united against the measure, which threatens San Diego’s quality of life. Instead, we should be building the city of the future – making smart investments in public transportation that will ease traffic, providing affordable transportation options, addressing climate change, and reducing the cost and burden of asthma attacks, cancer treatments, and other pollution-related illness on our families and our communities.
