A Sonoma Valley Healthcare District parcel tax, Measure B ballot question was on the March 6, 2007 ballot for voters in the Sonoma Valley Healthcare District in Sonoma County, California, where it was handily approved.

Measure B levied a $195/year parcel tax for five years.[1]

A two-thirds supermajority vote was required for approval.

During the campaign for Measure B, the hospital's CEO, Robert Kowal, resigned in order to shore up support for Measure B.[2] Board member John MacConaghy also resigned.[3] Kowal and MacConaghy were unpopular with some voting blocs in the community because they advocated for Measure C, which was on the May 2006 ballot, where it was overwhelmingly defeated.

One year after the vote on Measure B, voters in the district also approved Measure P, a $35 million bond request.
