San Marino : 200 Join Prop. K Campaign

May 01, 1986

More than 200 residents have volunteered to campaign door-to-door for Proposition K, a measure on the June 3 ballot that calls for a special tax on property owners that would help support the San Marino Unified School District.

The measure, which failed to get the required two-thirds vote in the November election, would levy a tax of $145 a year for four years on each parcel of property in San Marino. The resulting estimated $700,000 a year would help pay for programs that the district would otherwise cut because of a shortage of state public school funding. Proponents of the measure say the district suffers from declining enrollment and does not receive special funding that is available to others with more foreign and low-income families.
