Storyboard for Santa Clarita cityhood campaign television commerical titled "Get Control," 1987, by the City of Santa Clarita Formation Committee. Handwritten notes suggest it ran on KCBS-TV.

Text reads:

Every year millions of dollars are leaving this valley, money that is needed to build roads and redevelop communities.

You can keep this tax surplus here in the Santa Clarita Valley by voting yes on cityhood. Voting yes means more representation and accountability.

We can vote to preserve the lifestyle and the beauty of the Santa Clarita Valley.

Voting yes means we will have a greater say in the future development of this valley.

So get control. Vote yes on cityhood on November third. Call this number for more information [shown on screen].

Independent analysis confirmed that $3.5 million in local tax dollars were "leaving this valley" annually; the figure represents the difference in property taxes collected from SCV residents by the county for municipal services over the actual value of municipal services rendered.

Area voters approved city formation by 14,723 votes to 6,597 votes (69%-31%) in the general election of Nov. 3, 1987.
