The DeMaio Report: Sign Petition to Stop Raiding Of Road Repair Funds!

May 9, 2019

Contact these San Diego politicians to stop the raid on road repair funds and demand the projects we were promised!

Carl DeMaio is leading a campaign to stop the politicians from raiding our road repair funds and is fighting the new tax hikes the politicians want to impose to increase the already-massive taxpayer subsidies for the little-used transit and bike lanes.

On Friday, April 26th, San Diego County’s regional transportation planning agency, SANDAG, released a plan to cut 14 freeway and highway improvements and shift all of that money into “transit” for downtown San Diego and to fund conversion of road lanes to dedicated bike lanes.

In 2004, voters passed a 40-year tax increase because politicians had released a specific list of road improvement projects (I-8, I-5, Hwy 52, Hwy 67, Hwy 78, etc.) that they promised would be completed with these tax dollars. This plan would specifically overturn the vote of the people and steal them money from road projects.The result will be those roads will remain clogged with traffic and riddled with potholes.

“SANDAG has been plagued by scandal and mismanagement for years and now the agency wants to dilute what little integrity it has left by violating the will of the voters” said Carl DeMaio. “It is time that voters band together, speak loudly, and demand that politicians keep the promises they made to voters in 2004” DeMaio concluded.

SANDAG and its subsidiary MTS also propose higher taxes: both a massive Sales Tax hike and a “Congestion Tax” for anyone wanting to use the roads – with all that money going to transit, not roads.

San Diegans can work together and tell our local elected officials to VOTE NO on this new plan. We must demand that any plan without the road, highway, and freeway improvements is simply unacceptable.
