Working to Restore Sonoma County Services
In the spring of 2014, on behalf of the Restore Library Hours Campaign, Progressive Source continued its campaign to convince the County Board of Supervisors to place a 1/8 of 1% sales tax revenue measure on the ballot with a new petition, which gathered more than 1,100 names.
The campaign inspired hundreds of citizen emails or calls to the Supervisors.
As a result, in August, 2014, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to place Measure M, a sales tax on the ballot. It would have raised $10 million annually for ten years for the county Library system. During the November, 2014 Election, the Measure M ballot measure received 63.5% of the popular vote, falling short of the 66.67% threshold required for a sales tax measure.
Progressive Source continues to work on a grassroots level to assist the Restore Library Hours Campaign to restore vital library hours to its community.
