WHY WE SUPPORT MEASURE J

 

Measure J, updates our 1913 governing document of San Bernardino County to work for San Bernardino County residents in 2020. An updated governing document ensures that those elected to serve have clear guidelines as to how they are to conduct business on behalf of the people who elected them.

We support Measure J because:

Measure J provides a pathway for REAL CHARTER REFORM by doing the following:

TERM LIMITS

Measure J reinforces strict term limits and closes the term limit loophole making it impossible for a termed out Supervisor from “restarting the clock” by moving to another district.

LOBBYIST REFORM

Measure J will establish landmark lobbyist transparency in San Bernardino County by letting the public know which special interests lobby our County government.

REDISTRICTING

Measure J will ensure redistricting for Supervisors is an open and transparent public process by creating a platform for citizen involvement, ensuring residents have a real voice, and preventing elected officials from rigging the results behind closed doors.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE

Measure J will ensure leadership is working full time for the people, especially during emergencies like global pandemics, massive fire storms, and other crises that require quick and effective responses.

Keep Politicians Honest. Vote YES on Measure J.
