What is Santa Clara Plays Fair?
Santa Clara Plays Fair (SCPF) is a recipient committee. We are formed for the purpose of raising funds to defeat the anticipated stadium subsidy ballot measure. We are registered with the California Fair Political Practices Commission. Our CA FPPC ID is 1300389.
What is the goal of SCPF?
SCPF was specifically formed to prevent the use of public assets or indebtedness to build or operate a professional football stadium in the City of Santa Clara. We want the City of Santa Clara government to place projects and services that address community needs and benefit the entire community above special, corporate interests.
How does SCPF intend to do this?
- By communicating our position and objective information that supports that position to the Mayor and City Council, the City Manager, Redevelopment Agency, and other relevant City of Santa Clara departments; to the citizens of Santa Clara; and to the media.
- By utilizing political action, including the ballot box. The latter could include initiatives, and referendums.
Who are the members of SCPF?
SCPF primarily consists of Santa Clara residents, but other local organizations whose geographic area of interest includes Santa Clara may also be involved.
How is SCPF organized?
SCPF consists of a chair, several committee directors, and a general membership. Everyone is invited to become a member by emailing
