Why is there a recall?
Less than six months after newly-elected city council members took office, Trump supporters, hate groups, and special interests have teamed up to overturn election results that didn't end up in their favor.
So far they have spent over $50,000 to mislead voters, spread lies, and attack the character of the two most outspoken City Councilmembers who are trying to implement data-driven, compassionate solutions to homelessness, build affordable housing, and protect the environment.
This recall is being funded by the same groups that fought against renters protections and want to limit the ability of students to vote in Santa Cruz politics. Join us to resist the recall and FIGHT FOR REPRESENTATION, HUMAN RIGHTS, AND SUSTAINABILITY.
