I finished my public Google docs spreadsheet of results from the whole State for parcel tax and bond measures. WCCUSD came out on top with %79.2 for both parcel tax and bond measures. This was a surprise given that the pollsters in the Spring were saying it would be a squeaker with defeat well within the margin of error. But across the board in the State, the crisis worked out in favor (“their” State budget crisis) instead of against (“my” recession). WCCUSD’s position on top is a further surprise given the negative brand of “WCCUSD”, but you have to give proper credit to a great campaign run by Glen Price, Genoveva Calloway, and Peter Chau along with others mentioned by the Superintendent. Behind the antipathy to our District, there may simply be a great reservoir of support for public education itself.
