Bond measures have provided us with up-to-date facilities; now we must vote for Measure C so we can continue to provide the best education possible on those updated campuses. As with every company and every household, the school district is weighing carefully where it can make cuts. Although the superintendent's priority is that everything funded is judged on its relevance to the classroom, at this point cuts are bound to affect programs and personnel that directly impact our students. The passage of Measure C would provide some relief in these troubled times.
We should take pride in our beautiful community and want the best in our neighborhood schools. We have active parent populations that raise money and contribute their time. Anything extra is paid for by the parents and active booster clubs for sports, music and academics. But still, money is needed for some things, such as the programs that have been funded for the last five years by the expiring tax and improving science programs.
Vote Yes on Measure C.
Measure C votes must be received by the Contra Costa County Elections Division by Tuesday, May 5, to be counted and officials suggest that they be in the mail May 1 to guarantee delivery. If there is any doubt, ballots may be dropped off from 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., Tuesday, May 5, at two locations:
* Creekside Community Church, 1350 Danville Blvd., Alamo
* San Ramon Valley Conference Center, 3301 Crow Canyon Road, San Ramon
