In Support of Measure K

 

November 1, 2018



Californians are proud of our state’s leading role in technology, entertainment and diversity. However, there is one area where California ranks almost dead last: K-12 education support.

Our state ranks 48th in per-pupil spending, largely as a result of restrictions passed decades ago on property taxes [Prop. 13].

That’s why 118 California school districts have passed local parcel taxes to raise funds for their schools to ensure a high-quality education. In Los Angeles County alone, 15 school districts now have parcel taxes.

It is time for Culver City to join those ranks. Measure K would impose an annual tax of $189 on homeowners; that comes down to about one Starbucks treat per week.

I hope you will join me in supporting Measure K. Our kids are worth it!
