Don't be fooled by BIG OIL lies.
Don't allow the BIG OIL expansion by 481 new wells.
BIG OIL spent 8 million to allow BIG OIL expansion and fracking.

Big Oil lies are intended to deceive you...
The TRUTH is Yes on Measure G allows existing oil operations to continue for as long as the operators want.
The TRUTH is YES on Measure G allows all routine well maintenance as defined by State rules and regulations, including use of acids for maintenance only.
The TRUTH is YES on Measure G bans new oil drilling and future fracking in SLO County.
The TRUTH is YES on Measure G takes a huge step toward protecting our groundwater resources.
The TRUTH is our county water basins are in overdraft and the central coast drought continues. We need our water for more important needs than new oil wells.
The TRUTH is BIG OIL has plans to expand in SLO county by 481 new oil and waste injection wells. Oil operations remove 500,000,000 gallons of water from SLO county aquifers every year – do we want that to
