An open letter to the Alameda community

The Alameda Sun received a copy of this letter.

Dear Alamedans:

On Nov. 4, almost two out of three Alameda voters voted "yes" on Measure I, a facilities bond that will provide $179.5 million for our community’s schools. This means the economic health of our school district’s facilities and our entire community will be greatly improved.

This letter is simply to say thank you to all those who voted for the bond and a special thanks to all of those who contributed to the Measure I campaign.

Because of your efforts our children’s learning environments will be safer, greener, modernized and better equipped. Your support will allow our district to honor the previous community investments in our schools by maintaining them properly. Your responsible stewardship will pay dividends for decades.

Once again, on behalf of the Measure I campaign, thank you.

Bram Briggance, Chair Yes on Measure I Campaign
