$1 Billion School Tax? Not if YOU Act!

A campaign committed to defeating Tamalpais Union High School District's unfair and unnecessary billion-dollar tax measure is now underway, thanks to support from COST and concerned citizens. Volunteer, donate, and learn more about the campaign by visiting NoOnATUHSD.com.

CO$T Submitted the Argument against Measure A appearing in the Voter Guide for the March 5, 2024 Election:

Vote NO On Measure A.

It is a $1.04 BILLION tax that increases inequality and does not deliver what our students need most.

Measure A’s biggest expenditure is an unnecessary, non-essential, gold-plated cafeteria. No money goes to reduce overcrowded classrooms, close the huge educational achievement gap for low-income students, or attract and retain top teachers.

Marin values diversity, economic justice, fairness, and community engagement. Here is how Measure A falls short of these fundamental principles:

We value education and want our students to thrive. Our community IS willing to spend money that directly improves the education of ALL our students. Measure A does NOT do this.

We should not pay for a gold-plated cafeteria, more unfairness, and more inequality.

Please. Vote NO on Measure A.
