San Ramon parcel tax debate set

The San Ramon Valley Republican Women will host a debate on March 31 about the San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s parcel tax.
San Ramon Valley Unified School District Trustee Greg Marvel will speak on the pro side while Mike Arata, a Danville anti-tax activist, will speak against the parcel tax.
Voters will decide in April during a the mail-only election whether or not to approve a seven-year, $144 annual parcel tax, which would replace the district’s existing parcel tax which expires in June 2009. The school board approved the election in January.
The event will take place March 31, 5-7 p.m., at the Crow Canyon Country Club, 711 Silver Lake Drive in Danville.
The cost is $20 for appetizers and a no-host bar. For reservations, call Sonali at 925-314-9129 or e-mail her at mcvayall@comcast.net.
