What is Measure A?
Measure A is an extension of a one-eighth cent sales tax passed by the voters in 2012. It was set to expire in 2023, but Measure A extends the tax on an ongoing basis. If approved, this general sales tax will provide approximately $50 million annually for County services.

Providing affordable housing for working families, veterans, seniors, teachers, nurses, paramedics and other workers.
Helping our vulnerable homeless residents get off the streets and transition into safe and permanent housing.
