I voted YES on measure I and am disappointed it failed. I do not understand why propositions only need a majority to pass but measures require 2/3.
That said, I understand why some people may have voted against measure I. Las Positas accepts students from counties other than Alameda, yet the tax would have been imposed only on Alameda county residents, and some people had issues with that.
Too bad it failed, it would have only been 23 dollars per year.

Actually it would have been $28, not $23.
BUT, you know what they say: "$28 dollars here, $12 dollars there, pretty soon it adds up to real money"
Taxpayers are sick and tired of being nickeled and dimed to death!
