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."

Novato 3 per, Maybe the wind was her first hint that she is wasting her time like she did inRead Morethe Debate . All you people get your hopes up before every election and in the end you are all crying that your candidate only misses by so many votes . Hankies are only 1.oo at the Dollar store

How is wind a hint about time use? Nevertheless, I think the wind may be her only significantRead Moreoppos ition. I predict a landslide for Shroyer. Care to make it interesting Spam ? I think the dollar store also has Chinese preparation H for those alter egos that keep popping out your a$$.

Sam: So you are suggesting that we maintain a system of government in which there are noRead Morecompetitor s in elections. The person currently in office, remains in office forever. Marc Levine, an inexperienced politician ran against a powerful incumbent, Michael Allen, and unseated him. I am not sure if it is the democratic system that you are against or just a game you play on line. In the past your battle cry was run for office. Now you have someone doing just that and yet you say its hopeless. Such a strange game.

we are still 2000 votes behind--! send to your contact list!--get it in the IJ!

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.

Rick--it is difficult to clarify things for people that don't read---can you spell BUS.---Can youRead Morere ad the headline?---Thanks for your interest though--it will be YOUR tax dollars---that fund this BUS station that the Mayor and a few council members railroaded through without ANY public input!

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?
Suzanne A April 18, 2014 at 01:30 PM
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?

This vote is for $38,000,000 for Novato Schools---to fund salaries, new hires and administration.Read MoreTh is tax is not needed but looks easy for the schools to try to get--so why wouldn't they! Prop 30 was also sold to the voters as a cure all for schools---little was said about the fact that Prop 30 tax's went in to the general fund and were dispensed from there---to whatever need the legislature and the Governor thought best---like pensions and salaries and more beaurocracy--! In out town our Mayor now thinks that financing new astroturf out of our Measure F funds (intended to cover deficits due to the "Great Recession") instead of using them for what they were intended---this is YOUR leaders at work with YOUR tax dollars--we need to say NO--until we get the TRUTH from them AND are invited to participate in the decisions that WE pay for---Like the GRAND CENTRAL BUS STATION--- Just oked for Novato without /ANY public input!!!!!
