Letter to our Supervisors

County Tax

  

Dear Supervisor,

Today I’m advocating for the children of San Joaquin County who need our attention and investment. They are our greatest joy and potential for strong and healthy communities. Nearly 40,000 children live in poverty in our communities facing daily struggles that limit their ability to grow and thrive. As much as 30% of children 0-5 live in concentrated poverty. Studies have shown time and again, how concentrated poverty effects everything from crime rates to social mobility. Our choices today will not only impact their lifelong potential it will decide the future of our county.

However, there is action we can take today to change that reality! This month you will decide if our county will tax any Cannabis enterprise allowed in San Joaquin County IF the Board legalizes any Cannabis enterprise in San Joaquin County, THEN we ask you to direct 50% of any tax revenue generated toward children and youth prevention services. Precedent has been set around our country that children and youth, whether through education, mental health, or 0-5 initiatives, should benefit from this new revenue stream. For years now our most vulnerable children have seen massive cuts to programs that work with disastrous impact – programs that strengthen their families and give them better educational outcomes. If new revenue is brought into the county then we must prioritize funding that will benefit these children and their families.

Supervisor, your leadership is needed now. Your choices today will have impact on our county for years to come. The decision to invest in outcome driven prevention programs TODAY will help children grow into thriving adults TOMORROW. In an agricultural community that grows so much, surely we can direct our attention to grow our most valuable resource…. Our children.

Resident of San Joaquin County
