Great website, far more informative than PUSD's site!
I like this part that points out that Measure G is one time funding.
The Federal stimulus dollars buy California and PUSD plenty of time to reform the way they spend taxpayer money and it would be disappointing to see this opportunity squandered by any attempt to continue wasteful spending. The District has shown an inclination to call the money from ARRA a "one-time" fund. Not to state the obvious, but Measure G is also a "one-time" fund. Not labelling Measure G as "one-time" also gives the appearance that the District fully expects the parcel tax to be renewed by voters in the future. That makes Measure G nothing more than a foot in the door to your wallet.

Didn't San Ramon and Livermore advertise their original parcel taxes as having an expiration date? And now aren't they trying to renew them?
It doesn't seem likely that once a parcel tax billing is in place, it's ever going to go away.

HAHA! But I thought Measure G creates a stable source of funding! You mean it's not at only four years? I hear the federal money is a two-year one-time source of stable funding.
