June 2016 SJPOA Election Recommendations
San Jose Sales tax Measure B
Passing this ¼ cent sale tax is our number one priority for the POA in the June election. This tax is long overdue and will bring in $40 million dollars a year into the general fund. Rebuilding this police department requires ongoing funding that this tax provides. This tax is supported not just by labor groups but by the San Jose/Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce, the majority of the city council and most candidates running for city council.

San Jose City Council
The POA has not made endorsements for city council races in the June primary. We will be making endorsements in the November general election. Fortunately we see a good number of candidates that support public safety running for city council this election. Unfortunately we also see some candidates with deep ties to Chuck Reed, Vic Ajlouny, Pete Constant and Jose Salcido. It is troubling to see candidates who want to further drag our department down and turn back the clock on rebuilding what they helped break.
Please be advised of the following candidates that do not support the rebuilding of the police department and would move San Jose backwards into Chuck Reed days if elected.
NO on Dev Davis
NO on Joe Lopez
