Thank You Almanac for the VOTE NO on Measure K recommendation.

The Board of Supervisors spent more time and energy thinking about what a slam dunk it would be to pass if they got it on this ballot. Not very honest.

Measure K is a 20 extension of Measure A a 10 year tax expected to raise $60,000,000 per year. It has produce more than $80,000,000 for the first 3 years. So it making $20,000,000 more than expected and they want to extend that by 20 years claiming affordable housing.

San Mateo County Grand Jury 2012 informed the residents that our elected leaders misled the voters with Measure A claiming we would lose services caused by a deficit if A did not pass. That was a lie. There was NO DEFICIT.
