Eye on Sacramento Pokes Major Holes in Measure L Proponent Argument

09 Oct 2014
by Vote L No

It’s a huge week for your Stop The Power Grab campaign! Absentee ballots should be hitting mailboxes across Sacramento in the next day or two. It’s imperative you Vote L No and mail those back in as soon as possible. We need a strong showing from our absentee voters if we’re to defeat this mayoral power grab.

In case you missed it, Eye On Sacramento released its independent analysis of Measure L, and it wasn’t pretty. Eye On Sacramento ripped the mayoral power grab proposal for its intent, lack of details, and detrimental impact on Sacramento.

Addressing a packed house last week at the Clunie Center in East Sacramento, Eye on Sacramento President Craig Powell and Director of Research Dennis Neufeld warned voters to Vote L No. They highlighted several studies that show city manager governments are more efficient. They also discussed the possibilities for corruption and how disenfranchised councilmembes would be under a strong mayor system.

The Report summarized Measure L’s Yes argument by saying, “The campaign literature of the “Yes” campaign argues that the current charter is “outdated” and that while the city is not broken, Measure L “is just better.” We find such justifications to be exceedingly weak.”
