I’ve read the detailed Roads and Transportation Safety Investment Plan and done my homework, and I’m voting YES on G. Here are my top four reasons:
- Measure G will repair potholes and cracks on streets and roads all across San Benito County, making it easier for us to get from Point A to Point B safely, no matter how we are getting there.
- Measure G will qualify us for needed state and federal matching funds to leverage taxpayer dollars further into our local community. Without these matching Funds, any road construction projects will not happen.
- ALL funds stay local to benefit our San Benito County transportation infrastructure. These funds cannot be taken by the general fund or the state.
- An independent Citizens' Oversight Committee, mandatory audits, and public reports are required to ensure funds are spent properly.
I’m not easily convinced, but Measure G is needed, and it will benefit us all. I hope you will join me and encourage everyone you know to vote YES on G.
