Alameda’s Pro-E Team Vows to Keep Up School Support

The election results for Measure E aren’t yet official, but here’s how they stand:

Yes – 14, 415, 65.62%

No – 7,551, 34.38%

With 66.6% needed, the Pro-Measure E effort appears to be falling ever so short.

Voters sent in 22,029 ballots, representing 52.88% of all registered Alameda voters.

The results are quite telling: The very-close-to-a-super-majority of voters supports the Measure E school parcel tax, even with its defects and despite major economic hardship.

What the 47.12%, or 19,659 residents, believe about this important issue… we may never know. Certainly, their voices could have really made a difference for either side.

As the photo above (of a child near Broadway and Blanding) illustrates, groups pushing for the schools and more financial resources for them will try to re-group in the interest of furthering the educational goals of the community.
