League for Coastside Protection endorses parcel tax

By on Thu, April 27, 2006

The League for Coastside Protection has voted to endorse Measure S, the parcel tax proposal for local schools on the June 6 ballot. This is a big win for the supporters of the measure and a good indication of strong public support.  The LCP has historically been at odds with the school board over the location of the middle school and the fight over that issue has been a stumbling block for past parcel taxes on the Coastside.

The LCP, an environmentally-oriented political organization the Coastside, has traditionally not taken positions on tax measures. The League cited the need for quality schools, the school board’s decision to built its new middle school at Cunha. The LCP also cited "the school district’s stated commitment to providing a busing oriented tax measure in the near future".
