Measure U cedes more power to SJ politicians
Measure U is a dishonest effort to deceive San Jose voters
Measure U asks voters to approve two completely separate and unrelated proposed amendments to the City Charter. The first part of Measure U relates to the setting of the mayor and council members’ salaries. The second part asks voters if the City Charter should be changed to allow the City Council to place an ordinance on the ballot that competes with a citizen initiative.
These are two separate and unrelated questions. Why aren’t these two questions being presented to San Jose voters as two separate measures?
If you want to cede more power to a handful of politicians, then Measure U is for you. If you’d like political power to remain with the people, then vote no on Measure U. — Pete Campbell, San Jose
