The half-cent sales tax will begin to fund the serious problems that the Redding Community have faced over the past several years.
“We along with other businesses and community leaders are behind Measure D & E One-Hundred percent. These measures will help improve our community and our safety”, said UPEC Business Manager Chris Darker.
