The ballots for the hotly contested school parcel tax are due today, June 22, at the Alameda County Registrar of Voter’s Office: 1255 Fallon Street in Oakland.
Please share any news on anti-Measure E events, if you can.
Some residents shared their anti-Measure E views recently by posting hand-made signs in their cars, which were parked at Alameda Town Centre.
On Bay Farm, a lot of the homes directly facing the San Francisco Bay have posted pro-Measure E signsin the past week or so, many with the “protect our home values” message.
While most Alameda residents and business want to support the public schools, many have mixed feelings about the size of the parcel tax and the way it is applied to commercial property.
Any bets? With the required 66.6% needed to pass, and the economy still hobbling along, this could prove to be a tough parcel tax for voters to swallow.
