San Diego County voters beware! San Diego politicians have hired canvassers to collect signatures at stores in your area on petitions to place a measure on the November 2024 ballot. Warning: they are outright lying about what the petition does!
As you can see in this photo, their unethical canvassers are telling unsuspecting voters that the petition is to “fix potholes.” Some are even saying it is for “public safety” or “environmental protection.” These are all lies. The petition is actually to approve a massive county sales tax hike!
Here are the facts about this fraudulent petition and costly tax hike scheme:
- Zero Funding for Roads: The initiative does NOT earmark any funds for roads or pothole repairs. Quite the contrary, the tax hike benefits SANDAG which has repeatedly raided road repair funds, cancelled highway expansions, and diverted funds to bike lanes and transit projects that has seen declining ridership for years.
- Special Interests Get Your Money: The tax hike lines the pockets of government employee unions and politically-connected contractors and developers.
- A Pattern of Lies and Waste: SANDAG which was caught misrepresenting its finances to voters on in the last election and they have even cancelled road projects they specifically promised to voters in previous elections in exchange for other tax hikes. SANDAG auditors have uncovered millions in abuses of taxpayer funds.
