Measure S is the right deal for Santa Clarita!  Voting Yes on Measure S removes billboards from Metro right of way in the middle the city, many near residential areas.
In exchange for removing over 40 billboards, 3 digital signs, no larger than the signs being taken down, will be constructed near the freeways.  This deal will conservatively generate 500,000 to 1,000,000 per year in additional revenue for the City, with no cost to taxpayers.
The City is indemnified from any costs related to construction or operation of the new signs. Measure S includes small business programs and discounts that help promote our local business community. Measure S is supported by the Chamber, Valley Industry Association and the Board of Realtors.

Voting YES on Measure EE will maintain excellent elementary schools in Saugus Union School District and provide safe, modern classrooms for local students.


Academic standards are rising for what it takes to compete for the best 21st century jobs. Our students need upgraded classrooms, science labs, computer systems and instructional technology to equip them with the skills necessary to ensure their future success, and to ensure that our community has a well-trained workforce.


Measure EE will maintain quality instruction in core subjects like reading, math, science and technology and will allow the District to complete needed repairs to provide well-maintained schools and classrooms that protect student safety and security.

Voting YES on Proposition 1 ensures a Reliable Water Supply for the Santa Clarita Valley during our severe drought – Protecting both the economy and the environment.

California is in a severe, multi-year drought and has an aging water infrastructure. That is why Republicans and Democrats and leaders from all over California came together in nearly unanimous fashion to place this fiscally responsible measure on the ballot.


  • Provides safe drinking water for all communities
  • Expands water storage capacity
  • Ensures that our farms and businesses get the water they need during dry years
  • Manages and prepares for droughts
  • Invests in water conservation, recycling and improved local water supplies

Yes on Prop 1 and 2


Join Supervisor Antonovich and the Chamber in voting no on Proposition P. It is a flawed initiative that was pushed onto the ballot without any public outreach, input, discussion or research to justify its need.
It is not currently needed to fund parks and recreational programs – we have $150 million in unallocated park funds and our park system will not face any budget cuts without this tax.
Prop P is not needed to fund park maintenance – that will continue to be funded by an existing parks tax that doesn’t expire until 2018.
Finally, Prop P will not help reduce crime or make our neighborhoods safer, because the funds generated from Prop P can only be used for capital projects and cannot be spent on community programs or operations.

  1. The SCV Chamber of Commerce has done a lot of damage to this community with their position on Measure S. This crony deal has a lot to do with their President Jim Backer getting the opportunity to build a new Metro Station at his mega high density urban village development in Lost Canyon then it does with the best interest of Santa Clarita. The Development Agreement has NO REVENUE ESTIMATES OR GUARANTEES. at all. A rate card is not available for public inspection. The City has already paid 1.5 million + to buy the Edwards Company out and the special election. In addition the City agreed to indemnify Metro for any and all costs related to toxic waste mitigation at the Remsen site. I doubt if anyone at the SCV Chamber has actually read the Metro Development Agreement. They speak from ignorance and insider self interest. Vote No On Measure S – Stop Digital Billboards and this very bad deal.
