Measure B is the right solution for the future of Menlo Park's students

Original post made on Oct 8, 2021

Measure B is a long-term financial solution that allows Menlo Park City School District (MPCSD) to continue delivering superior education at a reasonable cost, and one with meticulous accountability to the taxpayers. I say this as the leading voice against previous parcel tax measures; I even drafted the argument against measures A and C in 2016. In contrast, I fully support Measure B.

Thank you for the article. I completely agree it is wise to support Menlo Park Schools and specifically Measure B! We have the opportunity to experience and gather deep insights into how MPCSD works day-to-day compared to some other school districts in the Bay Area and event some private schools nearby. The administration and teachers of the Menlo Park Schools are top-notch and provide a rich and nurturing experience to families and students. It is shocking how Menlo Park Schools can accomplish all that with less $ per student. The city as a whole (property prices, businesses, etc.) benefits so much from our outstanding schools.

No on measure B!!! This area collects more cash for education than any in the country. The teachers unions abused the Covid crisis to leverage the most personal gain possible. Imagine if your doctors and nurses said we aren’t coming back to work unless we can work from home, have others pay for our child care, and raise our taxes. “Don’t let a crisis go to waste” is their motto. REFUSE NEW TAXES, IT WILL NEVER END!

I can't think of a better investment in our community's future than to support our local public schools. As a community-funded district, it is our responsibility. The district has demonstrated incredible competence and stellar student outcomes for decades because our community is is willing to support local education.
Yes on B.
