NO on Measure O

The Big Bear Chamber of Commerce, a non-profit organization that exists to advocate for the local business community, views the Citizens Initiative as detrimental to our local mountain economy, businesses, and residents.

Due to the significant projected losses of jobs, tax revenue and visitor spending, the Big Bear Chamber of Commerce strongly opposes the Citizens Initiative.  If passed in November, the Initiative will be extremely harmful to our businesses and local economy, thereby having a negative impact on our residents.

The Chamber urges residents, businesses and employees to seek the facts about the Initiative and VOTE in November.  For the benefit of the entire community, PLEASE vote NO on O.
