In Alameda: From the mouths of Elks

So the very enterprising Michele Ellson over at The Island (yay, for Alameda blogs) has it from the Elks that they know they’ll not be responsible for square-footage-based taxation through the Measure H parcel tax.

So now, with six days until next Tuesday’s vote, perhaps we can turn our attention toward the big picture: that quality schools matter to a community, that good schools mean higher property values as well as more customers for local business. NOT TO MENTION, that good schools go a long way toward helping young people develop into thoughtful, productive, and participatory citizens. Who get jobs. Who pay taxes. Who become civic leaders. And engineers. And inspiring humanitarians.

But that’s all been said before. You can find your polling place, by the way, here.
