Ravenswood tax up in the air

With two of 19 precincts accounted for, Ravenswood City School District leaders were on the edge of their seats Tuesday night, with a 70.92 percentage of voters in favor of the $98 parcel tax and 29.08 percent opposing the tax. Measure M, if it wins a two-thirds approval, would continue the parcel tax first enacted by voters in 2004.

The assessment helps Ravenswood pay teachers’ salaries, which were the lowest in San Mateo County before the tax, Assistant Superintendent Adam Escoto said Tuesday night. With the parcel tax, teachers new to the district make $41,297 to $73,299.
