Under the bold leadership of action hero turned Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the unfailing direction of California Alliance for Jobs CEO Jim Earp, five infrastructure initiatives are placed on the November 2006 ballot. Propositions 1-A; 1-B; 1-C; 1-D and 1-E are simultaneously placed before voters, to fund vital improvements for water, levees, education, housing and transportation. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is named one of only seven Statewide Co-Chairs for the entire package of improvements, and one of only two State Co-Chairs for the Housing Bond (Prop 1-C). All five pass on Election Day.
