Thank You Voters

On behalf of Cargill and its employees, we want to thank the voters of Fremont for taking a careful look at Measure K and rejecting its harsh consequences for the City.  We reluctantly entered this campaign because we felt an obligation to inform people that, if passed, Measure K would subject the City of Fremont to $50 million in broken contracts - about $500 per household. This was not a "scare tactic," it was an important issue.  We knew Fremont could not afford that.  We also knew that Measure K would not protect the Coyote Hills: they are already protected as part of the East Bay Regional Park District.  Further, we knew Measure K would not promote agriculture on our former salt crystallizer, where no crops will grow. Neither would it improve habitat because it promoted mega-mansions and gated estates.

When voters considered all the facts, they agreed that Measure K, was a bad proposal for Fremont.  Our deepest thanks to all the Fremont leaders who endorsed our campaign and all those who volunteered to help spread the word. 

Bob Douglass
Manager of Property, Cargill
