Money Can’t Buy Votes

23 Oct 2014
by Vote L No

Have you seen the opinion piece in today’s Sacramento Bee, “Will Big Money Strong-Mayor Campaign Scare Voters?” With so much money pouring in from outside interests supporting the power grab, we trust voters to answer that question – and vote No On Measure L.

In addition to the Bee’s coverage, CBS13 aired a story on Monday night, “Kevin Johnson Absent From Strong Mayor Debate As Campaign Draws About $1 Million In Support” which outlines the stark dimensions of the power grab.
A million-dollar campaign to bring more power to the Mayor’s office seems incredible – but by outspending our Stop The Power Grab campaign five to one, they think voters will turn a blind eye to what those big money interests expect in return. We know voters are smarter than that.
And now is the time to act.

We’re just 13 days away from voting – and we need your help in these last days now more than ever. Even if you only can offer a couple of hours, we need you!
