Bob, they are trying to follow the traffic fine model, where a $50 base fine turns into a $200+ ticket.

Nice way to sneak in an extra tax by spending the money on a special election that they don't say is vote by mail only. I've heard at least a dozen people ask how come the senator and supervisor race isn't on the school district ballot. I suspect had the school district put it on the June ballot they'd lose.

Regan: Yes, the special separate election cost about $160,000. The district couldn't wait one month and save that money? Wasteful! A few days ago there was a letter in the IJ giving good reasons to "Vote No on A".

All these election processes are really a bit absurd. Why not just vote online using your Voter registration #, your date of birth and/or Drivers' license issue date (all of which are known by just you and the state). The County could also send a postcard to every resident asking them to view the voter pamphlet online, and/or send only 1 to each address of record. There are so many more economical ways to do this. But, hey, it's not their money, it's ours, what do they care? They all live in Sonoma.
