Culver City Unified School District parcel tax, Measure EE (November 2009)
Measure EE authorized the school district to levy an annual $96.00 parcel tax. The tax will last for five years.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
- These final election results are from the Los Angeles County election office.
Five of six candidates for seats on the Culver City School Board attended a forum in September during which all five expressed their support for Measure E. They were: Alan Elmont, Patricia Siever, Kathy Paspalis, Robert Zirgulis, and Karlo Silbiger. Zirgulis said he is usually "opposed to new taxes, especially during a recession" but he is supporting EE because "the situation in the schools is dire.”
Supporters of Measure EE sponsored a march in Culver City on September 26 to express their enthusiasm for a "yes" vote on Measure EE.
The question on the ballot:
| Measure EE: "To protect the quality of education in Culver City schools from deep State budget cuts by
providing stable local funding to maintain: math, science, technology, music and art programs; updated instructional materials; quality teachers; school libraries; and small class sizes; shall Culver City Unified School District levy an annual tax of $96.00 per parcel for 5 years only, with exemptions for seniors, independent oversight, no money for administrators’ salaries, and all funds staying in Culver City to benefit our local schools?"
