OPINION: Bond Measure Will Protect The State’s Future

On Tues., June 5, you will be able to vote on Proposition 68, a $4.1-billion ballot measure that will provide funds toward parks, the environment and water projects throughout California. This is a simple majority vote, general obligation bond. As a bond, it is paid back through the state’s general fund over a 20- to 30-year period of time. It is not an assessment or tax on local property. The advantages to our area in helping protect and enhance our quality of life makes this a proposition worthy of your support.
