2016 Measure B Citizens' Oversight Committee Application

In November 2016 the voters of Santa Clara County approved 2016 Measure B to enact a 30-year half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements.

The ballot measure specified that the revenues and expenses would be reviewed by an independent citizens oversight committee appointed by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). The committee will audit and report on the performance of VTA and the various project sponsors to ensure the funds are being expended consistent with the approved programs in the measure.

VTA seeks eight candidates for this committee through this open application process. Candidates must be registered to vote in Santa Clara County and the selection process will seek a balance of relevant professional experience. 

The term will be four years, and appointments will be recommended by Governance & Audit Committee for ratification by the full VTA Board of Directors.
