    The unfortunate thing about recycling Measures in the same county is that at least for awhile, you get links to old initiatives.  Measure Q a few years back was a County charter initiative about supervisor pay.  Now, Measure Q is the repeal of San Bernardino Charter section 186 which sets public safety pay.


    Here is the website for the No on Measure Q forces.  The Website has a video regarding Measure Q.
