Why WE SUPPORT MEASURE p:

David McDonald

Former CEO of Pelco & Chairman of Measure Z

“The list of projects funded by Measure P will be transformational for Fresno, and I am proud to support an initiative that is both pro-parks and pro-public safety. Fresnans don’t have to choose between one or the other - both are achievable with Measure P.”

Ashley Swearengin

President & CEO, Central Valley Community Foundation

“CVCF is a proud supporter of Measure P because we believe in the importance of clean, safe neighborhood parks for the residents of Fresno to enjoy. We are just one of many supporters of this incredible, grassroots initiative, and we are grateful for the countless community, parks, and arts leaders who have banded together to support this measure. Measure P is a clear win for all Fresnans.”

Alan Autry

Former Mayor of Fresno

"Measure P isn’t just a hopeful solution, it is backed with years of research and outlines a precise, detailed plan to improve our parks system. The Measure guarantees the revenue raised can only be spent on what is specified in the measure, and includes strict, fiscal accountability and citizen oversight. When Measure P passes, we know exactly how the money will be spent."

Todd Suntrapak

President & CEO, Valley Children’s Hospital

“Valley Children’s Hospital has been dedicated to the health and well-being of children in the Valley for almost 70 years. We proudly support Measure P because we know, children who have more access to quality parks and green space stay well more of the time. When kids have access to the outdoors, to neighborhood parks and green space – they recover and heal more quickly, their emotional wellbeing is stronger.”

Dr. Joaquin Arambula

Assemblymember, District 31

“I support Measure P because as a physician, I know all too well the vital medical benefits that having access to safe, adequate parks has on our community’s collective health and well-being.  Improving our city’s parks will help our community thrive and increasing arts opportunities will fuel the creativity of our youth for generations to come.”

Larry Powell

Former Fresno Co. Superintendent of Schools

“Our local parks are an important part of making our community a desirable place to live, work and raise a family. Yes on P provides a guaranteed, local funding source for Fresno’s parks that will improve the health of our community in a tangible way. It is time that we come together to support this solution that will ensure we all have access to clean, safe neighborhood parks.”
