A March 23 board of trustees meeting agenda item is to support the initiative to reduce voter threshold for education parcel taxes to 55% from 2/3. Let's see whether the Board members want to make it easier to tax and spend. The 2/3 threshold hasn't stopped many communities from passing parcel tax measures. Just because some communities can't reach the 2/3 level is no reason to just lower the threshold is it? Oh, right, change the rules if you can't win.
