Our local K-8 school district urgently needs your feedback on resolving their financial problems.
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!!!
Thanks to Colleen Sullivan for finding this link to the voter information pamphlet:

Is the Board bailing when the going gets tough?
The SMFCSD is trying to resolve a salary dispute in the aftermath of the defeat of Measure Y. Important Board meeting on June 8th!
Measure Y has failed…
UPDATE added 4/7/17 at 4:50: Last scheduled count has been posted and the percent Yes remains at 65.2%. Official certification comes 30 days after the election, but the measure is clearly dead in the water, falling short of the required two thirds majority. The article below was posted on 4/5/17 and is still of interest due to the comments that followed it.
If Measure Y does not pass, SMFCSD will definitely lose $7 million a year!
$7,000,000 in current local school funding will be lost if an existing parcel tax is not renewed!! Please be sure to submit your mail-in ballot when you receive it!
