Letter: Vote yes on Measure P
November 02, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

As a Foster City parent, Measure L Citizen Oversight Committee Member and Measure P campaign volunteer, I am proud of the diverse community support Measure P has received.

State senators Jerry Hill and Leland Yee, Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, Supervisors Carole Groom and Dave Pine, San Mateo County Democratic Party, San Mateo County Labor Council, San Mateo-Foster City School District PTA Council, local businesses leaders and many others agree that Measure P is needed now for local schools.

Community support has resulted in these endorsements, hours of volunteer phone banking and neighborhood walks, and financial support to the Yes on P campaign. Parents, employees and PTAs have donated alongside local business owners. Because it will produce local jobs and support their neighborhood schools, local labor organizations have donated to support improved schools.

Our community supports Measure P because it’s a community plan to continue student success in our schools. Measure P will fund the carefully constructed plans to address district-wide school overcrowding, ensure all students have safe and modern classrooms and provide updated technology to meet rigorous, 21st century academic standards. Measure P is the result of community input, careful collaboration and board approval of our district’s Enrollment Management Plan, Technology Plan and Facilities Master Plan.

Our community — current and former parents of San Mateo and Foster City Students, teachers, business owners, seniors and local elected leaders — has come together to pass Measure P because it’s vital for every student in our entire district. On Tuesday, Nov. 5, please join us and vote yes on P.
