Re: “The Rainy Day Dilemma

Bravo to the East Bay Express for really digging into this issue. And finding how, once again, schools have been dragged into the toxic mix of state funding. Now, instead of draining school property taxes, the Gov & Legislature are going after school reserve funding. (Probably because at least two counties' schools have been drained completely dry.) No on 2.

Re: “Monday Must Reads: Brown to Endorse Schaaf for Mayor of Oakland; Governor Rakes in Millions for Ballot Measures

Why does Gov. Brown talk about 'creating' a rainy day fund? One not only exists, he put $1.6 billion dollars in it this year!

The only fund he creates, a rainy day fund for schools, pulls money OUT of their minimum constitutional funding guarantee -- promising to replace it (ya, right) in down years.

Furthermore, he forces school districts to dump their local reserves as soon as he does 'save' a dime (along with any April property taxes they'd hoped to use to fund ongoing education before the second annual installment in December).

Local control? Hah. No on 2.
