Gravenstein Union School District parcel tax, Measure I (June 2008)
If Measure I had been approved, it would have imposed a parcel tax of $45.00 for eight years starting July 1, 2008.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
On March 3, 2009, slightly less than a year after the defeat of Measure I, voters in the district were asked to approve a similar parcel tax increase measure, Measure A. Voters, however, defeated Measure A just as they had defeated Measure I. Measure A asked for a tax increase of $36/parcel, slightly less than the $45/parcel request in 2008's Measure I.
- These final, certified, election results are from the Sonoma County elections office.
