Greg Lucero, SCC Manager, says Santa Cruz County continues to struggle with a tight budget. He says it will not be helped if Proposition 100 is defeated by voters May 18. He says a projected budget deficit could be reduced if the 1-cent sales tax increase is approved. If it fails, Lucero says all County departments will have to make deep cuts and that could mean a cut in services and staff reductions.
