Parent support for MEASURE MB will make the difference

Measure MB will help retain high-quality teachers, maintain manageable class sizes, and protect quality instruction in math, reading, science, social studies, and art/music. The local funding measure would raise $2.6 million a year for six years, at an annual cost of $225 per parcel, to provide stable, reliable revenue for our schools. But this type of measure requires a super majority vote of 66.7% on June 5 to pass and the margin of victory is typically only 100 votes. EACH AND EVERY VOTE COUNTS. Please register to vote and encourage your children to register as well. Anyone age 16+ can pre-register and vote at age 18. Learn More, Endorse, and Donate at
