According to an article in the Contra Costa Times by Eric Louie of the San Ramon Valley Times...There are 81,150 registered voters in the San Ramon Valley and 39,271 took the time to vote. That is 48% cared about the schools or taxes. Measure C passed with 73% approval which means that only 35% of the voters care about money being taken from them. Is it no wonder that none of our neighbors to the north seem upset about the Fire Chief's pension?
I think the voters in Pleasanton know the facts about Measure G and they will vote in sufficient numbers. So if the Yes-G people are gaining hope from the San Ramon vote, DON'T. This is a bad tax for salary raises and the people know it.
