StandUp Santa Clara published Stop the 49ers’ Dark Money Campaign Spending in Santa Clara Elections in News 2020-02-13 00:56:23 -0800
This month, the City of Santa Clara uncovered a possible “dark money” scheme by the San Francisco 49ers.
The team is spending over $300,000 to buy a Santa Clara city election -- and they tried to do it anonymously. They hid the money until the City Clerk caught them. They're opposing Measure C because they don't want the Santa Clarans to create council districts -- a move that'll make it harder for them to control the Council.
Please sign our Change.org petition to support investigations by state and local authorities that will uncover and stop the 49ers' dark money spending in Santa Clara elections.

Santa Clara residents finally have a mayor willing to stand up to the 49ers. Lisa Gillmor is a welcome change from the Jamie Matthews administration who genuflected at the team’s feet.Read more
When Scott Herhold from the San Jose Mercury News suggests it’s a quarrelsome marriage, he ignores an important fact. It’s not just the Mayor who can’t trust the 49ers, it’s our community. And we have good reason.

City Appoints New Interim City AttorneyRead more
The City of Santa Clara has a new, Interim City Attorney. It’s Brian Doyle who is a Santa Clara resident and Civil Services Commissioner. He received unanimous support from the city council with Dominic Caserta absent for the vote.
Ren Nosky, who was the City Attorney, suddenly resigned during the holidays. Around town, people, say it wasn’t as dramatic as former Mayor Jamie Matthews’ resignation the day after the Super Bowl, but it was close. And there are some similar rumors swirling about reasons why.
Santa Clara voters made their voices loud and clear last night when nearly 90% of our community voted YES for Measure R on election day. Measure R protects Santa Clara parks and open space by requiring a vote of the people before city government can sell or change the use. We are particularly grateful that Measure R protects the Youth Soccer Park and the Ulistac Natural Area from potential development. The 49ers tried unsuccessfully to acquire those lands for their use. Now, it will be impossible for them to do so in a city hall backroom. For this, we have many people to thank the Santa Clara Charter Review Committee and especially Tino Silva for helping push this onto the ballot.
