San Diego REALTORS® Help Defeat Proposed “Jobs Tax”

May 2014

The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR) needed a lot of signatures — 34,000 authentic and verifiable signatures, to be exact.  That was the number required to get a referendum on the ballot to overturn an onerous fee increase on developers of office buildings and mixed-use residential developments. The12,000-member SDAR put an Issues Mobilization Grant to work to help collect a whopping 53,000 signatures, far more than were required to put a referendum on the ballot.  All those signatures turned the tide:  the City Council saw that the issue would not do well in a public vote, and decided to rescind the tax increase altogether.
