Elk Grove Citizen: Mayor, other leaders launch ‘Yes on Measure A’ campaign for transportation funding



Measure A was also designed to improve and enhance transportation infrastructure to accommodate population and employment growth.

About 60% of Measure A funding would be used for local street and road repairs, highways, bridges and overpasses, while about 40% of the funds would be used for public transit, paratransit services, light rail extensions, and expanding transportation services throughout the county, noted Michael Quigley, executive director of California Alliance for Jobs.

“(Measure A would) ultimately deliver thousands of transportation projects, big and small throughout the county,” Quigley said.
