Ballot Measures

Yes on Prop 19 – Home Protection for Seniors, Severely Disabled, Families, and Wildfire and Natural Disaster Victims

Limits Property Tax Increases on Primary Residences for Seniors, People with Severe Disabilities, Families, and Wildfire and Natural Disaster Victims Generates Hundreds of Millions of Annual Funding for Fire Protection, Local Government and School Districts.

More information


No on Prop 21 - Prop 21, the Local Rent Control Initiative, repeals portions of California’s rent control law that protects single family homeowners and has no plan to build affordable and middle-class housing or deal with the increasing problem of homelessness on our streets. Prop 21 includes no protections for seniors, veterans, or the disabled, and it has no specific provision to reduce rents. For Californians losing jobs - and both renters and homeowners who are struggling - this poorly written initiative is the last thing we need.

Yes on Measure M - Tamalpais Union High School District Quality Education Renewal Measure - To renew $16,800,000 in expiring annual funding and prevent deep cuts by continuing locally controlled school funding the state cannot take away, shall Tamalpais Union High School District maintain excellent hands-on science, technology, engineering, math, reading and writing instruction; attract/retain highly qualified teachers; and support music/art; by adopting a measure renewing the current $469 annual per parcel rate for 9 years, with senior exemptions, cost of living adjustments, and independent oversight.
