CitiPAC is the League of California Cities’ political action committee
The League needs the financial capacity to advocate for cities at the ballot box, and CitiPAC has been central to the success of protecting local democracy and tax dollars in elections past.
This year is an especially important year as the League’s Board of Directors recently voted to support a series of ballot measures that will improve neighborhoods and the quality of life for California city residents. Those measures include investments to affordable housing, park and water infrastructure; constitutionally protecting transportation funding; and opposing any efforts to repeal new transportation funding at the ballot box.

The Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018 will appear on the November 2018 statewide California ballot.

- Yes on Proposition 2: No Place Like Home “Homeless Housing” Ratification.
- Would enact the No Place Like Home Act of 2018 specifying that service contracts may be single-year or multiyear contracts and would provide for payments to the department from amounts on deposit in the Supportive Housing Program Subaccount including any appropriation or transfer to the No Place Like Home Fund from the General Fund or other funds as moneys required to be paid into the No Place Like Home Fund. Proposition 2 would also authorize the Legislature to amend the No Place Like Home Act of 2018 by a two-thirds vote, so long as the amendment is consistent with and furthers the intent of the act. League position: Support.
Prop 6 would eliminate funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway throughout California.
- The California Professional Firefighters, California Association of Highway Patrolmen, American Society of Civil Engineers, business, local government, labor, environmentalists and first responders urge NO on Prop 6 because it will stop critical transportation projects and jeopardize the safety of our bridges and roads.
