The November 2022 ballot measure would provide supplemental funding for the county’s child care system through a $49 per year parcel tax.
"The Safe, Affordable, Quality Child Care Act is a much needed and long overdue initiative to begin the process of addressing the severe need for child care in Monterey County. The hospitality industry faces challenges on many levels, not the least of which is affordable child care for our workforce. This could be a game changer, allowing our dedicated team members to get back to work, doing what they do best." - Rick Aldinger, MCHA Government Affairs Chair and Big Sur River Inn General Manager.
