ERAF Advocacy Documents
On behalf of Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez, thank you for joining us.

Please provide us your name and email addresses below. Please also share this with others who you think can play a part in our advocacy.

To better raise our voices for the community, we will be directing advocacy letters to
(1) Governor Gavin Newsom,
(2) Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins,
(3) CA State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon,
(4) Assemblymember Phil Ting, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Budget, and
(5) State Senator Holly Mitchell, Chair of the Senate Standing Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review.

We will send out to the information below:
1. Email addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses for the 5 Elected Officials listed above
2. Letter templates
3. Script for phone calls

Together, we will raise our voices in opposition to the Administration's proposal to retroactively shift property taxes from five Bay Area counties: City and County of San Francisco, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, and Santa Clara and inappropriately provide the Department of Finance with the authority to penalize these counties for failure to abide by not-yet-written guidelines from the Department regarding the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund (ERAF) calculations. The proposal is unfairly punitive and improper, especially given the significant fiscal challenges facing our counties, and we must urge our elected officials to reject it.

The proposed actions would result in considerable financial consequences to the affected counties, as well as their cities and special districts. Our counties are already experiencing reduced sales tax and transient occupancy tax revenues due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More lost revenue would further harm the already precarious financial situations of our counties and likely lead to deeper cuts in core county services.
