CALL TO ACTION – HELP DEFEAT ONEROUS TAX MEASURE IN SF

There are two onerous tax measures on the San Francisco ballot in June that could decimate the commercial real estate industry in that city. We are looking to all members of the business community to contribute to help defeat them.

Our local team at BOMA San Francisco is fighting hard against the measure and has done recent polling that shows they do have the opportunity to push back the threats, and they are working with a professional team and a broad range of business allies.

They are asking for your immediate help – these taxes are exportable, and your city may be next! BOMA San Francisco’s PAC, BOMA International, BOMA Greater Los Angeles, NAIOP SF, and many other investors and owners of commercial real estate have contributed to this effort.

Please find a remit here and more information about the campaign via the links below.  They need to raise $1.5 million+ – and with commitments have raised $1 million+ to date – to defeat the two measures that would massively impact building value and tenants directly.

The campaign is going strong – here are the links to the campaign website, Facebook page and videos that are airing strategically on cable. There are also mail pieces/window signs and a social media/internet strategy component.

 

For direct information as to how you can help, please contact John Bozeman, BOMA San Francisco’s Director of Government and Industry Affairs at johnb@boma.com.
