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.
