California Self Storage Association

CSSA Plays a Pivotal Role in Defeating Prop 15

Thursday, November 12, 2020 4:38 PM | Ross Hutchings (Administrator)

To all California Self Storage Operators –

CONGRATULATIONS – we have defeated Proposition 15 (Split Roll tax)!

CLICK HERE to read the article about this defeat.

The California Self Storage Association in collaboration with the Self Storage Association (national association) led the fight on behalf of the self storage industry in California. Our thanks to Brian Caster, A-1 Self Storage/Caster Properties and Ken Nitzberg, Devon Self Storage who led the fundraising effort from self storage businesses. According to the Wall Street Journal, our coalition (NO on Prop 15) raised over $74 million. The self storage industry raised over $3.5 million - that means self storage accounted for nearly 5% of the funds collected to defeat this proposition! Considering all the commercial property owners throughout the state, that is very respectable.  THANK YOU to all who donated. 

CSSA and SSA joined a collation, the NO ON PROP 15. Tino Rossi, Meridian Pacific Inc, from the No on Prop 15 said, “Congratulations to the SSA and CSSA for their defeat of Prop 15. Your grassroots efforts coupled with your tremendous financial support pushed this over the top. Your members should be so proud of this campaign and the part they played in it. Victory!!!”


On behalf of the California Self Storage Association and ALL self storage businesses – THANK YOU for your grassroots efforts – letters to colleagues, friends, and tenants. We truly DID make a difference!
