Dear Piedmont Community,
With the passage of Measure A we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for once again demonstrating your strong commitment to Keep Our Schools Strong. You have just ensured 8 years of stable, locally controlled funding for our school district.
Seeing and talking with friends and neighbors on the campaign trail has been tremendously rewarding for everyone involved with the effort, and we feel honored to have received the community’s trust and support.
The A Team volunteers who undertook the hard work of helping to reach out to everyone deserve a standing ovation. Piedmont is privileged to have a volunteer corps of such integrity and dedication working on behalf of the schools.
As a community, Piedmont should feel extremely proud of its support of quality public education - it is part of what makes us unique and special. The 77% approval rate for Measure A, a uniform tax that does not favor or exempt anyone (except those with an SSI hardship exemption), is consistent with our historically high passage rates for school support taxes, and demonstrates Piedmont's collective commitment to local schools unrivaled by any other community in the state.
Investing in education helps our community, our children, and our future. The outstanding quality of our local schools makes Piedmont a desirable place for families to move and raise their children. At the same time, it protects our property values and builds community.
Thank you, Piedmont – your support and investment ensure that our town will continue to be known for its excellent schools.
