  • VOTE NO

    Vote NO to increasing the sales tax to double the size of the county jail

  • Spokane Measure 1 proposes to raise the sales and use tax by $1.7 billion over the next 30 years to pay for an expensive new downtown jail. 

    This measure would add a sales and use tax of 2 cents per $10 dollars spent in Spokane County through 2054. Despite this massive price tag, county commissioners who proposed Measure 1 have not outlined specific plans for how the money would be spent. In addition, the current county commission failed to implement any of the policies for reducing jail crowding that were recommended by their own Justice Task Force before proposing the construction of a big new jail. In fact, a national expert hired by the county to analyze the region's future needs found that a new jail is not needed and would be the most expensive option. 

    Criminal legal experts and civil rights leaders agree that the county should instead pursue commonsense reforms that save money and are proven to reduce crime, like affordable housing and mental health and addiction services. We should fund more of these solutions that will reduce crime at a fraction of the cost. 

    Spokane residents deserve proven, cost-effective approaches to public safety, not $1.7 billion boondoggles that lack accountability to taxpayers. Vote No on Spokane Measure 1.
