It’s All About the Climate and Our Children’s Future
By Jim Miller, Nicole Capretz, and Nick Segura
San Diego does not have a history of visionary regional planning, but the woefully inadequate Measure A would take our city to a new low by ensuring decades more of inadequate efforts to address both our infrastructure needs and climate change.
Sadly, Measure A is not up to the transportation and climate justice challenges of the present and would guarantee a future for our city that would leave us with no solutions for climate change or traffic congestion while increasing pollution, poisoning our children, and turning a deaf ear to the needs of beleaguered communities of color.
Measure A is a disingenuous effort to slip a blank check to an unaccountable agency more interested in putting a green façade on business as usual than stepping up to the plate and really attempting to meet the needs of the 21st century. This decades-long regressive sales tax is a bad investment for our children’s future. We can, indeed we must, do better.
That is why progressive San Diegans should say No Way to Measure A.
