WHY WE OPPOSE MEASURE O
Don’t be fooled. Corporate interests used their money and influence to force the
City of Sacramento to put forward a measure that will harm our community. Vote
no on Measure O.
Everyone agrees that homelessness is an urgent public health and civil rights
crisis. Approximately 7 people each day become homeless in Sacramento. Black
residents are nearly 4 times more likely to become homeless than white residents.
Shelters are full and there are insufficient services for folks with substance abuse
or mental health issues. The impacts are real, and require immediate action.
Measure O will not help. With no new funding, no housing, and no mental health
or substance abuse services – this ill-conceived plan will only delay the real
solutions we need.
Cities are not equipped to deal with this crisis. The City Manager has stated
repeatedly that the City of Sacramento cannot afford to keep our current shelters
open after this year - much less open new ones. Our city will have a massive
budget deficit in coming years, and the $5 million cap in this measure will not
protect against litigation fees - which are expected to be significant when
constituents sue the city for perceived inaction. The city will likely need to cut city
services if this measure becomes law.
Despite these facts, the Sacramento City Council put this measure on the ballot to
please the corporate special interests behind it. To make matters worse, at the
last minute the Sacramento City Council voted to amend Measure O to make
implementation contingent on an unspecified agreement with the County of
Sacramento that will be negotiated behind closed doors. This is an unacceptable
perversion of the democratic process and cannot be allowed to stand.
Join us in the fight for real solutions - not more false promises. Vote no on
Measure O. Learn more at www.NoOnO.net.
