Foothill-De Anza Community College District's parcel tax hit with last-minute opposition from union

Mountain View Voice
The local community college district's service workers union is urging voters to reject Measure E, the parcel tax that proponents say would raise much needed money for Foothill and De Anza colleges.

"The district has a history of overspending," said Leo Contreras, president of Chapter 96 of the California School Employees Association, which represents service, maintenance and skilled trade workers in the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.

Measure E would charge property owners in the community college district up to $69 annually per parcel and raise about $42 million total over the course of six years, when it sunsets.

Contreras accused the district of being wasteful and said the Foothill-De Anza administration has treated the members of his union unfairly, continually violating the CSEA's collective bargaining agreement.
