Volunteers Sought for MST’S Measure Q Oversight Committee

On November 4, 2014, the voters of Monterey County approved the first-ever countywide sales tax measure for public transit. In July 2015, the Monterey-Salinas Transit Local Transit Funding for Senior Citizens, Veterans and People with Disabilities sales tax, otherwise known as Measure Q, began to raise approximately $8 million per year to be used solely for services and equipment that support transportation programs for veterans, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities. An oversight committee was created in April 2015 to review and report on the revenue and expenditure of funds from the tax.
Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) is seeking volunteers to apply as a member on the oversight committee to represent the following:

  • The County of Monterey, to include a representative from an unincorporated area of Monterey County
  • The non-urbanized areas to include a representative from among the cities of Gonzales, Greenfield, Soledad, and King City

The representative will be appointed by the MST board of directors and serve up to a three-year term.

Interested candidates can learn more and obtain an application by visiting www.mst.org/about-mst/measure-q/<https://mst.org/about-mst/measure-q/.

For more information, visit www.mst.org/about-mst/measure-q/oversight-committee/ or contact Hunter Harvath, Assistant General Manager at 831-264-5969 or via email at hharvath@mst.org.
