Business, labor, cities, elected officials, enviros and community organizations staged an impressive show of force last Tuesday at the Red Line station in North Hollywood, with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti as host of the show, and everyone in agreement that Californians must VOTE NO on Prop 6!
"This is the most important election of your life—which I can say with credibility since I'm not on the ballot!" said Garcetti. "It's important because of national and local issues and because if there's one thing that Californians want it's to fix our roads. We want a guarantee that transportation and traffic will be addressed. And if Prop 6 passes 900 road projects will hit the brakes. You get what you pay for so vote NO on Prop 6!"
The LA Times said this in their editorial urging a no vote: "It's hard to overstate how destructive Proposition 6 would be for California. Vote no." Then long-time LA Times political columnist George Skelton said it again a few weeks later: "California needs to fix its crumbling roads. There’s a massive $130-billion backlog in maintenance," he wrote. "This has to be paid for by motorists."
So just to be clear: Prop 6 would jeopardize public safety by eliminating funding for 6,500 transportation repair and improvement projects now underway across the state. This would eliminate thousands of jobs, which would hurt the economy. It's opposed by firefighters, highway patrolmen, engineers, and organizations representing cities, counties, public interests, public health, seniors, environmentalists, social justice advocates, education, faith-based interests, business, labor, and transportation/infrastructure—like us at Move LA.
Take our word for it: ENDORSE NO ON PROP 6 HERE AND VOTE NO ON TUESDAY!
