Without increasing current taxes, to fund local priorities such as: law enforcement and public safety; trauma and emergency care; affordable housing; supportive services for the homeless; transit for seniors and the disabled; children and family services; agricultural preservation; and mental health services, shall the County of Santa Clara continue its existing one-eighth cent sales tax on an ongoing basis, estimated to raise $50,000,000 annually, with annual public reports for fiscal accountability?
