"Done Downtown for Measure E," set for Tuesday, October 25, sees 15 downtown restaurants and food shops donating a portion of their proceeds from that evening to the Measure E campaign.
"We'll have rallies for Measure E in front of each participating restaurant from 5-7pm and are encouraging people to dine at the restaurants that night," says Emily Ulhorn, one the Measure campaign organizers. "It should be a great community event and a fantastic way for our downtown restaurants to show support for our schools."
The event comes on the heels of a success version of it on Miller Avenue, Ulhorn says.
Measure E, which will be on the November 8th ballot, seeks a renewal of the $981 parcel tax (the initial $731 plus 5 percent annual increases over eight years) for the next 12 years, with a 5 percent annual increase to match the projected annual rise in educational costs, according to ‘Renew for Mill Valley Schools – Yes on Measure E’ campaign officials.
