Santa Cruz County
The Peace & Freedom Party refuses to endorse partisan candidates of the Republican and Democratic Parties in the General Election. Because of campaign financing, they are the only ones to be able to make it through the primary election given that only the the top two candidates are allowed to proceed to the General Election.
However, we do endorse candidates for non-partisan office and ballot measures. Here are the local endorsements of the Santa Cruz County Central Committee.
Santa Cruz City Council
Soquel Creek Water District
Santa Cruz School District Trustee Area 2
- NO on Measure K – Santa Cruz County tax on medical marijuana
- NO on Measure L – City of Santa Cruz tax on medical marijuana
