Argument Against Measure T

We are coastside residents and small business owners. We know from personal experience how devastating the loss of Highway One at Devil's Slide can be. Each time the road closes, our businesses are devastated and hundreds of us lose our jobs. In addition, the health and safety of our loved ones is threatened because emergency vehicles can't get through. That's why we need a quick and permanent solution to Devil's Slide. Unfortunately, Measure T is not the solution.

Read the fine print, and you'll find:

The simple fact is Measure T is not a quick or permanent solution to Devil's Slide. That's why we urge you to Vote No on Measure T. The future of our families and businesses depend on it.

Rebuttal to the Argument
Against Measure T

Measure T gives us a clear choice. Vote YES on T for the tunnel, or vote NO and Caltrans will build the freeway bypass. For the first time in thirty years the choice is ours.

Measure T is supported by residents, businesses and by a majority of coastside civic leaders who recognize that preventing the devastation wrought by the freeway bypass is good for business, good for families, and good for the environment.

A clear mandate from the voters in favor of a tunnel will empower our legislators to get the money needed to finally fix Devil's Slide. After 30 years of gridlock we deserve our share of highway funds to fix our Coast Highway. The sooner, safer, cheaper, and BETTER solution for Devil's Slide is the TUNNEL.
