Rethinking the Parcel Tax

I'm so confused! I am doing my homework, reading lots about this proposed parcel tax. And I'm just not convinced anymore. Don't get me wrong, I am a mother of 4 school age kids and when I first heard about Measure G, I was in total support, just for the mere fact that I would do just about anything for our schools. But I am not sure anymore that the school board has done everything they can. This is a tough economic time for all of us, I just don't see the sacrifice made from Casey and his counterparts. I have read the rebuttals from Casey and they are not convincing. They just don't make absolute sense.
I think this mom has changed her vote to NO on Measure G.
I would love for the Measure G supporters to convince me otherwise, but at this point, I don't see it happening. Show me where the sacrifices from the Superintendant, board and teachers have been made and show me how there is NO OTHER OPTION. No scare tactics or tugging at my heartstrings- I want FACTS.
