Support

  • Local elections can be conducted by mail, which would save money.[1]
  • "It would...allow us to give preference to local businesses in providing goods and services."[1]
  • It would allow the city to "have projects funded and built by volunteers using supplies and services donated by local contractors."[1]
  • The city would not have to "pay prevailing wages on locally funded public works projects".[1]

Measure I: "Shall the City of Grover Beach be changed from a general law city to a charter city through the adoption of the charter proposed by Resolution No. 12-42 of the Grover Beach City Council?"[2]
