‘Yes’ on 2020 Measure A

Editor:
It’s not that far off, and I’m not sure many are paying attention to the local issues to be decided in the election that is coming up in March, yes, on Tuesday, March 3, alongside all the hoopla with the presidential primary. 

One of the issues to be decided is salaries for Alameda Unified School District teachers that lag well behind our neighboring communities. To ensure Alameda’s young people grow up smart enough to take care of the rest of us as we age, it’s essential to provide them a quality education via quality teachers. 

That means being able to pay teachers good salaries and retain them as they gain experience. Please vote “yes” on Measure A and keep Alameda’s kids smart.
