Martinez 2016 Election Results

Dec 28, 2016 06:57PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

November Election Results 

Measure D

The Measure D Transaction and Use Tax was passed. The Measure required a 2/3 yes vote to pass.

Yes - 71.95% with 12,765 voters.

No - 28.05% with 4,977 voters.

Measure D is a one-half percent transactions and use (sales) tax. One hundred percent of the revenues generated by the new tax will be allocated exclusively for Martinez to go toward road improvement and maintenance needs. For every $100 spent on taxable transactions (which do not include items such as grocery food or prescription medications), shoppers will pay an additional 50¢. The funds will allow the city to salvage some roads that have not yet structurally deteriorated to the point of requiring an extremely costly full depth replacement, and instead use less expensive slurry seals or other methods. The tax will go into effect no sooner than April 1, 2017, and last for 15 years.

County Board of Supervisors

Incumbent Federal Glover defeated former Martinez City Councilmember AnaMaria Avila Farias for a seat in the 5th Supervisorial District.
