Individual votes are especially important in voting for or against Measure D, a parcel tax for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. The current parcel tax was approved four years ago, but that was only after a failed attempt in November 2003. In that election, 29,335 voters - 43.9 percent of those registered - went to the polls; 19,134 voted Yes for the Measure and 10,076 voted No. So the end results were 65.5 percent Yes and 34.5 percent No, on a measure that requires a two-thirds vote to pass, a heart-breaking loss for the Yes campaigners and a major victory for the No contingent.
On the state ballot, Propositions 98 and 99 are proposing changes in the laws about eminent domain. Surely voters will want to make their voices heard on this important issue, too.
Danville Weekly recommendations:
District 3 Supervisor: Mary Nejedly Piepho
Measure D: Yes
