WHY WE OPPOSE MEASURE A
We are Stronger without Strong Mayor
Neighborhoods lose their voice in City governance with Strong Mayor
All power transferred from Neighborhood Council members to just the Mayor
Decisions will be made in private rather than in public
City Manager and every department head will be controlled by the Mayor.
Mayor will control all Sacramento priorities, projects and services.
Biggest donors and special interest groups will control Sacramento’s direction.
Less Accountability and Transparency with Strong Mayor
Mayor will no longer attend Council Council meetings.
Mayor will no longer hear public testimony
Mayor can fire and hire City Manager at will
Mayor can line item veto any budget item
Locks $40 million dollars out of budget every year with Strong Mayor
Will restrict the City’s ability to increase essential City services
$40 million carve out leaves City no ability to adjust spending when the next emergency, natural disaster or recession hits.
Ballot box budgeting at its worst!
Sets a terrible precedent for any future special interest ballot measures.
No convincing argument has been made to change to Strong Mayor
Measure A “Strong Mayor” change is completely unnecessary
Current Council / Manager system works well in Sacramento
Current Council system offers more diversity and equity than “Strong Mayor”.
Sacramento is better than Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco and Fresno.
