Letter: No on Measure P in Foster City and San Mateo
October 12, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

I am concerned to hear that the Measure P proposal in San Mateo and Foster City would completely rebuild Bowditch Middle School and expand the school to include fifth graders.

Why would anyone want fifth graders exposed to the drama of middle school at such a young age and in such a large middle school? Elementary school is about learning how to love learning in a cozy, age appropriate and comfortable environment. I also do not understand why Bowditch Middle School in Foster City would be rebuilt from the ground up by taxing homeowners in both Foster City and San Mateo when the three middle schools in San Mateo are much older than Bowditch. There is still $70 million left from Measure L (passed in 2008) that will increase our tax bills over time as bonds are issued. Our school district needs to use voter approved funds from Measure L wisely before they ask to increase debt capacity again and add still more to my already large tax bill. I am going to vote no on bond Measure P.
