Help us Defend Measure A

An anti-tax measure headed to the November ballot in California would repeal Measure A and similar local citizen initiatives passed since 2022 and also set a two-thirds super majority requirement for citizen tax initiatives. To help us defeat this threat to our local control, click the donate button above or use our contact form.

As of April, the anti-tax measure does not have a ballot identifier. Its backers call it the “Taxpayer Protection Act.” The California Secretary of State tracking number is Initiative 1935. Look it up online to learn more.

Who Are We Are & Endorsements

We are a group of citizens concerned about the continued struggles of our fire departments. Fire stations are closing and our trained firefighters are leaving us to high paying jobs in other counties. We need a strong emergency response system in Calaveras for fires, vehicle accidents, medical aid calls, lift assists, rescues and more. Measure A will improve emergency response times, help retain trained firefighters and up to 30% can be used to maintain or purchase new equipment. Join us.
