VOTE YES on R
for Roads, Reading, Recreation & Resiliency
Provide locally controlled revenue. Revenue from the sales tax measure could not be taken by the State. All local sales tax dollars must stay here in Watsonville and will be invested in our community for our residents.
Measure R excludes essential purchases, like groceries and medicine from the tax, ensuring the sales tax is not a burden to those on fixed or limited incomes.
The sales tax would be paid both by residents and visitors who work or shop in Watsonville.
The measure includes fiscal accountability protections, including independent citizen oversight. By law, all funds must be spent on local projects and none of the money can be used on administrator salaries or pensions.
