16 Local Measures Hit Fall Ballots

Arguments are in, and the deadline for rebuttals is Friday, Aug. 26

While an exhausting fight drags on between two egomaniacs, each beset by one scandal after another, voters are already getting fed up with a 2016 presidential election that’s still more than two and a half months away.

Luckily, voters in Santa Cruz County can now turn their attention to the local ballots, which probably have a greater likelihood to make a noticeable difference in their lives.

The 16 mostly regional measures, which were posted to the county’s election site this month, include four on cannabis, three on schools, three on fire fighting and one for a countywide $500 million 30-year sales-tax measure.

Arguments for and against the measures went up last week, and the deadline to file a rebuttal against any argument is Friday, Aug. 26.
