I hope that responsible removal of fishing line and hooks is also a big part of this event. As aRead MoreWil dCare volunteer, I have seen many birds and other animals harmed by discarded fishing line and hooks.

According to their own website, the Measure A campaign is endorsed by Congressman Jared Huffman,Read MoreSta te Senator Marc Levine, Supervisor Judy Arnold, Sheriff Robert Doyle, Mayor Eric Lucan, City Councilwoman Denise Athas, City Councilwoman Madeline Kellner, Marin County Superintendent Mary Jane Burke, the Marin IJ, the Novato Chamber of Commerce and all of the NUSD PTA units. According to the Patch, the No on A “campaign” is endorsed by “Marin HJTA”, “Hopkin”, “Al Nonymous”, Mark Schoenbaum, “DMC”, “Roger” and “Novato Sam”. I guess I’m just going to have to go with my gut on this one. I sure am glad the Patch is around to help me make this decision.

Who decided the way I intend to vote?---

"Novato Local" you neglected to mention the endorsement of the Novato Federation ofRead MoreTeache rs, who recently circulated an email saying, "The Measure A phone banks are really hurting for volunteers. We are falling behind on the numbers to get this passed, and it is crucial that we do. If that 4 million dollars is not on the table, the substantial benefits package that we are working on will fall apart." I do see Marsha's point that this is clearly about "education for our kids."

Sam aka Linda aka Bud Light aka Trolly McTroll - If you read the statements made by both candidates Read Moreit is clear that Judy Arnold feels strongly that Novato needs more government and non profit subsidized housing. Toni's focus is jobs. If you think about it, providing people with jobs allows them to live in market rate housing and eventually to buy market rate housing. The long term goal is freedom from poverty. While Judy's intentions may be good, they don't end the cycle of poverty. Toni's intentions, also good, are more on the correct track. I hope I speak for Roger, when I say none of us are moving. We wouldn't be involved if we didn't call Novato our home. Perhaps you want to rethink your vote. Read Toni's article's in the IJ and the Advance. They clearly state her positions. Then ask yourself if you weren't in such conflict with the other posters, wouldn't you also want to support those ideas....

Ha Ha Who are you people trying to fool as Judy Arnold won that debate hands down .

Voting is closed and unfortunately, the Novato project was not the winner...

Is the above illustration a depiction of the rail stop at Firemens Fund or at Hamilton? If theRead Moreill ustration is supposed to be an accurate depiction of the Firemens Fund rail stop, the design has completely changed from the one presented by SMART to the city council a few months ago. It has doubled in size! Please clarify, DMC.

All that money and it won't even keep the riders dry from rain. But then it's not really for themRead Morean yway. It's a trophy for the local politicians and developers to congratulate themselves on another transfer of wealth from the taxpayers.

BJL's observation deserves further contemplation. Are only parents with children in NUSD receivingRead Moret he calls and mailers, as suggested? Could the district be providing parents' private contact information? http://www.mikemcmahon.info/parceltax.htm#district Would the robo call received from the principal of Sinaloa violate these rules?

Marin Mom, I stand corrected. Schools were give $100 per student for Common Core implementation. Read More$ 800,000 of the $1.6 million. Not that NUSD spent current parcel tax money on computers, but maybe they won't parcel tax money for that purpose as stated on the campaign materials. where should the money go?
