Letter: Measure Q

A yes vote on Measure Q is essential if we want to maintain the vitality of the city of Davis. The measure extends a local sales tax that would otherwise expire at the end of the year. Without it, the City would lose about $9 million a year in critical revenue — a huge part of the general fund that pays for basic services like police and fire, as well as parks and recreation programs. As a member of the city’s advisory Finance and Budget Commission, I see the huge impact that the loss of those funds would have.

We live in a wonderful town with lots of amenities — including engaging summer programs for kids, a thriving senior center, and a system of parks and greenbelts that other towns must envy. The city also provides many critical services that we either take for granted or don’t think much about until we need them. Like removing that huge tree that completely blocked B Street during that terrible storm last fall. Or, the quick response to that tragic shooting incident downtown a year ago.

Much of the attention to local issues on the ballot has gone to the schools — rightly so. Most of us realize the importance of maintaining a first-rate educational program for our kids.

But if we want to continue the quality of life we enjoy here in Davis, we also need to approve Measure Q on the March ballot.
