Alameda votes, Measure P and more

Lauren Do over at Blogging Bayport has a comprehensive local election page where you can find out more info about the candidates/ballot issues and, too, see who has endorsed whom/what.

People keep asking me about Measure P, the item on the city ballot that would raise Alameda’s property transfer tax. I will be voting for it, mostly because the more I learn about the city budget (not to mention the state’s and the nation’s) the more it becomes clear that, in order to keep things running semi-smoothly, we need to raise more funds. Michele Ellson over at the Island is supporting P, as is Lauren Do, and, too, John Knox White.
