Public safety funding is at risk.
Measure C is an existing half-cent sales tax in the City of Merced that funds local public safety and infrastructure. It was approved by Merced's voters in 2006.
Measure C is expiring and is back on the ballot this year! Voting Yes on C will renew the existing funding and ensure that it is spent on critical public safety needs. Without renewing Measure C, Merced will lose 32 public safety officers and critical funding that will lengthen emergency response times.
We need your help to renew Measure C funding for a safer Merced.
Vote Yes on C on or before March 5th!
