Napa Chamber of Commerce Endorses
“Protect Napa – Vote No on C”
The Napa Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has unanimously voted to oppose local Measure C, as recommended by the organization’s Government Affairs and Policies committee.
Measure C is the 2018 Napa County Watershed and Oak Woodland Protection Initiative.
The Chamber determined it necessary to better utilize time and resources to improve the focus on community collaboration to effect real environmental change. The organization also encourages every Napa County citizen to take responsibility and focus on working together on key issues related to sustainability in Napa County – from electric vehicles and renewable energy to food composting and water conservation.
Given the lack of scientific basis and unsubstantiated logic for the creation of this initiative, we ask that you please join us, “Protect Napa — Vote No on Measure C”.
The Chamber joins a growing list of those in opposition of Measure C ; including Napa Valley Grapegrowers, Napa Valley Vintners, Winegrowers of Napa County, Napa Valley Register, Sustainable Napa County, Napa County Farm Bureau, the North Bay Association of Realtors, California State Senator Bill Dodd, Napa County Board of Supervisors Ryan Gregory, Alfredo Pedroza, and Belia Ramos, City of Calistoga Mayor Chris Canning, City of Yountville Mayor John Dunbar, City of Napa Mayor Jill Techel, City American Canyon Mayor Leon Garcia, and St. Helena Vice Mayor Peter White – to name a few.
