TBW Measure W campaign

Original post made by Jack Hickey, Woodside: Emerald Hills, on Oct 19, 2018

In a prior topic, "Vote NO on Measure W Sales Tax" Web Link

TBWB Strategies Web Link was identified as the firm which masterminded the Get Us Moving(GUM) campaign paid for with >$1,000,000 of your tax dollars.
I have been trying to track campaign activity by the YES on W supporters. Unfortunately, the SMC Election website does not have a direct link to their filings. It wasn't until yesterday, after receiving a mailing from TBW(parent of TBWB) that I was able to retrieve the FPPC 460 and 497 campaign filings for the committee "Yes on W - San Mateo County Neighbors for Congestion Relief" using their FPPC ID#. 1407448. See:
Web Link

They have raised more than $3/4 million!

VOTE NO on W

Why should anyone listen to you, Hickey? Weren't you the one who said you would serve only two terms on the Sequoia Healthcare District Board? And here you are, attempting to get a fifth -- repeat, FIFTH -- term on the Board.

Pot, meet kettle.

Repair our roads - save drivers money on repairs, improve commute times.

Make American roads great again.

Yes on W - San Mateo County Neighbors for Congestion Relief just got another $25,000 in late contributions. How many slick mailings did you get so far? Expect another one.

Jack makes the case for public financing of elections.

He just doesn't care about road repair, or your car. Or the dental fillings jarred out when you hit the huge potholes out there.

Yes on W

"Jack makes the case for public financing of elections."

IMHO, GUM was public financing of an election! I am opposed to that.

Step 5 of TBWB's campaign strategy(needs a rewrite, since they didn't win):

Bridge to the Next Election
After voters have approved your measure, it is important to continue positive and transparent community dialogue about how you are utilizing voter-approved funding and delivering on your promises.

When taxpayers hear nothing they assume the worst and fall back on unfair stereotypes about how government spends money.

We offer a full range of ongoing communication services to our clients:

Creation of regular updates to highlight progress related to your measure, including messaging for email blasts, websites, social media and newsletters
Assistance with crafting responses to community or media inquiries regarding a local funding measure
Assistance with preparing presentations to community groups and oversight bodies
Regular direct mail updates to the entire community to ensure broad awareness beyond the most active and engaged citizens
