Another superhero: Measure L man!

You might have seen him yesterday at the Temescal Farmer’s Market, at the Rockridge Halloween parade or — if you live in Trestle Glen — trick-or-treating with his kids. Measure L man tells me he found a number of people who didn’t know much about the $195 Oakland schools parcel tax measure, but I’m sure he fixed that. After all, “fighting cuts to your public schools” is his middle name.

Are you voting for Measure L?

    Yes, yes, yes.

    Three voters in our house. One of them is 18, voting for the first time today, and he has high-functioning autism. He supports OUSD public schools because they have educated and supported him for the last 14 years (pre-K, K, and 1-12). They helped get him where he is today – a freshman at CSUEB.
