With all 42 precincts reported, the Alameda County Registrar of Voters has reported that Measure G received 9,651 votes--or just 61.7 percent of the total number of votes cast--in yesterday's parcel tax election in Pleasanton, failing to win the two-thirds majority vote required for it to pass.
A total of 5,988 votes--or 38.29 percent--were cast against the measure.
The parcel tax would have collected $233 per property to support Pleasanton schools. Ballot language said the tax would have lasted four years and seniors and those on disability could have been exempt.
The Pleasanton school board has scheduled a special meeting tonight to deal with the budget shortfall and to begin the process of following through on termination notices it has issued to administrators, teachers and non-certificated employees.
Piedmont Unified School District also had two ballot measures B and E on the June 2 special election ballot. Measure B and E passed with 77.8 and 72.7 percent, respectively.
The county reports that 48,901 voters were registered to vote on the measures in Piedmont and Pleasanton, and after all precincts were reported, 20,141 ballots were cast, or 41 percent. Of the total ballots, 27.4 percent were cast by mail and 14 percent were cast in person.
