It is fascinating that opposition to Measure C can be labeled as Michael James Arata’s opposition. The reality of opposition, now being erased by e-exchange distributions, is the result of lack of publicly presented planning for the uses of all sources of income by SRVUSD. Iron Horse neighborhoods, ad hoc Measure C committee, developed a summary plan and budget using the SRVUSD website information and distributed the summary to e-exchange participants from Alamo School to Dougherty Valley.
Ed’s point of $12 per month was reduced to an increase over current parcel tax of <$5 per month in COST segment of the summary due to the $54 per year increase over the $90 currently paid per residence. Clearly, SRVUSD provided exceptional information for study in its official forms. Media, including you, should have been the author of public summary distributed by Iron Horse neighborhoods.

REF: Cheaper than no Prop. 13
Other than Mike Arata, who apparently opposes anything the San Ramon Valley school district might propose, I can't imagine any reasonable taxpayer in the district who would not support paying a measly 12 bucks a month to continue programs that enrich the lives of our students. Twelve dollars! What a bargain considering that if Prop. 13 were not in force, we would be paying so much more.
