Parcel Tax debated for November 2011 ballot
Data from a recent study showed that a $68 parcel tax benefiting City College would likely pass if introduced on San Francisco’s November 2011 or 2012 ballot.
Trunchin Research surveyed 1,500 potential San Francisco voters and found that the parcel tax would narrowly receive the two-thirds majority needed for its passage. The data was presented at the June 23 board of trustees meeting.
The proposed parcel tax would bring in approximately $13.6 million for City College.
Many board members and members of SEIU Local 1021 suggesting trying to put the parcel tax vote on the November 2012 ballot, citing the large amount of money and outreach required with only three months to go before the 2011 ballot.
