Watsonville Police, Fire and Parks departments start campaign for Measure Y


Watsonville Police, Fire and Parks departments are campaigning for a measure on the March 2020 ballot.

Members of each department went door-to-door in neighborhoods across Watsonville, Saturday. They said they hope to gain support for "Measure Y."

Watsonville Chief of Police, David Honda, said the measure would continue funding to keep the city safe. Honda said the Measure Y would provide jobs and community programs in the Police, Fire and Parks departments.

"It's a wonderful thing because it's not a new tax. It's just a renewal of the current tax that is set to expire in 2021. It really bolsters the police and fire departments in order for us to provide the best resources and public safety for the community," said Honda.

Similar funding was passed by voters in 2014 as "Measure G."

Proponents for Measure Y associate low crime rates in Watsonville with the funding receieved.
