Measure K

The City Clerk’s office recently released the financial campaign statements from Board of Education candidates and Measure K advocates and opponents filed last month.


Of the 28 Alameda County measures on the Nov. 6 ballot, only five pertain to the City of Alameda. Measure F and Measure K pertain narrowly to the city. They deal with raising the sales tax and with inscribing the city’s rent ordinance into the City Charter, respectively. 

Measure F: Alameda Sales Tax 
A “yes” vote favors authorizing the city to enact a 0.5 percent general sales tax with no expiration date. This would raise raising the total sales tax from 9.25 percent to 9.75 percent.
