Election measure AA tax to fund additional Mid-Peninsula Open Space projects, opinion

Half Moon Bay Review, 5/23/14.  "On line poll."  Saw the poll only for a day then, gone since.

"Measure AA is a $300 million dollar bond measure that would fund Mid-Peninsula Open Space projects from Half Moon Bay to Los Gatos and cost property owners $1 to $3.18 per $100,000 of assessed property value. How do you plan on voting for the measure?"



The above was an opinion poll expressed by Half Moon Bay electronic readers, 5/23/14.  As expected, and probably similar to Pacificans and others who live along the coast, most of us do not want to pay an additional 40 year tax for San Mateo County peninsula open space.  But those who live in the peninsula will probably vote to for this additional peninsula open space tax, hence expect it will become our tax.

Reference - Shape the Future, 6/3/14, see "Special Districts", Measure AA.
