Garcia operated the same committee (prior to adding Doud's name) to support City Hall's-desired June 2018 Measure M utility revenue transfer/diversion for the June 2018 election. Two years earlier, Garcia gave it a different name (listing former Mayors O'Neill and Foster with Garcia) urging voters to support the City Hall-sought Measure A sales tax increase. The committee listed sums spent/expenses incurred of $265,263 from July 1 through November 6, 2018, some of which may also stem from the Measure M campaign preceding the AAA-DDD campaign.
Mayor Garcia unveiled five proposed Charter Amendments in a June 12 agendized item; the Council voted to put four of them on the ballot on August 7.
