Arguments FOR

Argument in Favor of Measure G

Can you believe how much college can cost? Vote YES on G--support students and the affordable, high-quality education and job training that Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland, Berkeley City College, and College of Alameda provide!

We need Measure G!

YES on G will provide critical technology updates to classrooms and training centers to prepare students to be competitive for today's jobs. Students need access to high-paying jobs so they can stay and work in their own community!

YES on G will improve accessibility and upgrade aging classrooms, technology and science labs for fields including nursing, healthcare and public safety.

YES on G makes students, teachers and the community safer! Measure G will replace aging, seismically unsafe buildings, provide better security/lighting and emergency communications systems, and repair/replace leaky roofs for a safer learning environment students need to succeed.

With the cost of higher education and living so high, our community has thousands of students that rely on the Peralta Colleges. We need to continue to invest in Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland, Berkeley City College, and College of Alameda so students can continue to access high-quality and affordable education and job training -- and save families thousands of dollars!

Measure G is fiscally accountable -- by law, Measure G requires published independent financial audits and oversight by an Independent Citizen's Oversight Committee to ensure all funds are spent as promised. NO money can be spent on administrators' salaries or pensions. NO money can be taken by the state. All funds must be spent on our local community colleges.

Join the Peralta Colleges Board of Trustees, local employers, community leaders and residents throughout Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, Piedmont, Albany, and Emeryville in voting YES on G!
