The Oaklandside / November 10, 2022
There’s still lots of ballots to count in the Nov. 8 election and results could change, but so far all of Oakland’s local ballot measures appear on a path to pass. The measures were placed on the ballot by the City Council and school board and they address a range of issues, but the most consequential ones would raise millions in new revenue for the city and reform its government processes, including elections.
Two Oakland schools measures—H and S
It appears that voters handed the Oakland Unified School District two wins.
Measure H extends a parcel tax for 14 more years to raise about $12 million per year, funding college preparation and career readiness programs that boost graduation rates and improve numerous other student achievement metrics.
