Letters to the Editor: Measure I campaign thanks voters

Letters to the Editor

On November 4, almost two in three Alameda voters passed Measure I, a facilities bond that will provide $179.5 million for our community’s schools. This result means the economic health of our school district’s facilities, and our entire community will be greatly improved. This letter is simply to say thank you to all those who voted for the bond, and a special thanks to all of those who contributed to the Measure I campaign: Thank you.

Because of your efforts our children’s learning environments will be safer, greener, modernized and better-equipped. Your support will allow our district to honor the previous community investments in our schools by maintaining them properly. Your responsible stewardship will pay dividends for decades.

Once again, on behalf of the Measure I campaign, thank you.

Bram Briggance
Chair, Yes on Measure I Campaign

I am not sure what this means as pertaining to our existing school measure "A" of which I am presently paying $422 a year (added to my property tax bill)...........Does it replace that payment, or is it added on? Also, I would say I didn't vote for it; seemed like there might be holes in the administration of these monies which would allow for no controls over how, when, or where the money would be used.

You will still pay Measure A.
Measure I will appear separate and will be $60.00/$100000 of you Base Assessment. So if your Base is $400000 your Measure I will be $240.00
