Measure B passed in Mill Valley with 70% of the vote! Thanks to all our volunteers and your hard work. And thanks to our schools' leadership team and the Measure B Committee for making this happen. Statewide Proposition 30 also passed, meaning more funding for education in Mill Valley and the rest of California. Overall Tuesday was a good day for education in our state. The Mill Valley Patch has a story here, and you can read Superintendent Paul Johnson's statement here. Statewide election results are here, and local Marin results are here.
Election Day is here. Thanks to our volunteers who helped get out the word about Measure B. Remember, Yes on Measure B!
It's too late to mail your absentee ballot -- you have to take it to a polling location. Google has a handy specialized search that will let you find your polling place: Google Voter Information.
Just a few short days until Election Day. As you probably know California has cut millions from Mill Valley Public Schools' budget, and to replace that lost funding we need Measure B. Measure B is local in Mill Valley andSacramento can't take the money away. We have more information about Measure B and the school budgets here.
If you'd like to help out, please join the Measure B Committee for a corner rally this Monday Nov. 5th from 3:30 to 5:30pm. Rallies will take place at four different locations:
- 4 corners at the intersection of Camino Alto and E. Blithedale Avenue
- Tam High side of the intersection of Camino Alto and Miller Avenue
- In front of GROW at Tam Junction
- Sidewalk at the 101 Exit on E. Blithedale Ave
The Measure B campaign needs your help. There’s just a few days left before absentee ballots arrive in voters’ mailboxes and just 35 days left until Election Day. Now is the most critical time of the campaign, when we must reach all of our parent voters and the 80 percent of Mill Valley voters that don’t have kids in the Mill Valley School District to ask for their support and remind them to cast their ballot. Unless Measure B secures 67 percent support, Mill Valley K-8 schools will be facing teacher layoffs, increased class sizes and cuts to core academic programs.
The Measure B campaign is holding regular phone banking on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Pacific Union real estate office at 37 Miller Ave. We need your help. Come for 1 hour, 2 hours or the full 3 hours. The campaign provides all the scripts and other information you’ll need. If you prefer to mix your advocacy with exercise and fresh air, Measure B has also schedule neighborhood canvassing on every weekend leading up to the election. Please visit the links below to sign up for a shift and help pass Measure B.

Thanks for your great support of keeping our quality teachers and protecting the excellent education program we’ve all worked so hard to build.
Well, summer sure flew by. But we were busy: so far School Advocate volunteers have talked to 172 people, marked down 126 Measure B supporters, and gathered 94 signatures on a petition to Gov. Brown. That's a great start, and thanks to everybody who's helped out so far.
Now that we're in the fall campaign season School Advocates is going to be teaming up with the Measure B committee for joint phone banks and precinct walks. The phone banks are every Monday and Wednesday until election day. The precinct walks are on either Saturday or Sunday until election day. We need all the help we can get, so RSVP now!
