Would you stay in a job if the only raise you got was 3 percent every 7 years?
That is what the real increase proposed for Measure V is providing – a $3 million increase to the $7 million 2010 Measure A parcel tax (the other increases in the parcel tax have been to account for inflation).
What is scary is that we’re doing the same thing again.
$3 Million out of a $122 Million budget.
A 2.45% real increase in funding for our schools every 7 years.
(actually 8 years, since Measure Y failed last year)
Around 0.3% per year.
THAT is how much the people of San Mateo and Foster City are investing in our kids.
That isn’t a raise, that’s a checking account.
Measure V is a critical first step for our kids, join us.
