IMPORTANT – SMFCSD Board Election is TODAY, 11/7/2017

Today, 11/7/2017, is the final day to go to your polling place or turn in your vote by mail ballot for the San Mateo-Foster City School District Board of Trustees Election.

The District is facing a $7 million dollar a year budget shortfall following the failure earlier this year of Measure Y in a dismally low turnout election. It is important that we elect dedicated and qualified people to the board to deal with this issue as well as the teacher salary and other problems. Please remember to vote!!!
