I wonder if Measure D might have a better chance in a general election. I can only assume that people voted against it because they must think the school district can somehow juggle its budget to provide everything without sustaining and increasing the parcel tax. I don't think anyone wants to cut these programs or minds terribly paying the tax - they must not trust that the district is budgeting its best. So how can the school community gain this trust?
