Can We Give A Shout Out?
On June 12, 2018, Sonoma County Supervisors will hear proposals from their staff on what roads and bridges to fix in 2019. Staff is going to recommend that funding from the County General Fund remain unchanged as budgets are adopted this week. Spending at the same levels as last year and this year was no “certain thing” as the County suffered through a huge increase in costs from last winter’s storms and both increased costs and loss of revenue from the October wildfire damages.
It would be greatly appreciated if you took the time to say thanks to our five Sonoma County Supervisors who continue to do a great job in “staying the course” to fix our County roads despite plenty of reasons to back off from that commitment.
The Chairman James Gore and the other Supervisors Lynda Hopkins, Susan Gorin, David Rabbitt, and Shirlee Zane all deserve to be acknowledged for their unwavering support.
If you can, please call or email them today and thank them for funding road repair—here is the link to their phones and emails:
Please give them a “Shout Out”!
That’s All Folks—
June 5-Election Results Show Voters Agree-Fixing Our Roads Is A Priority!!
Voters approved (with about 80% voting YES) Assembly Bill 69 which safeguards ALL of the tax revenue generated from Senate Bill 1 (passed into being last June, 2017). Also, voters approved Regional Measure 3 (with 54% approving) which will gradually raise bridge fares on seven Bay Area bridges (not the Golden Gate Bridge) and will raise $4.54 billion over the next 10 years for use on transportation infrastructure improvements in the Bay Area. This was an AWESOME RESULT FOR ECA AND ITS MEMBERS!!
Thanks to all of you who voted and supported these two bills.
