Latest election results: Measure E in a strong position, Alex Lee and Lily Mei lead in Assembly and Senate races
Votes are still being counted from Tuesday night’s primary election, but we’ve got some current numbers to report regarding the contests that pertain to Milpitas…. Measure E – the parcel tax that would provide funding to the Milpitas Unified School District – appears poised to pass, with 74.6% of residents voting “yes” so far. This measure would renew the annual $84 parcel tax for another 8 years, and provide MUSD with $1.6 million a year. These funds would be used toward maintaining STEAM programs, enhancing reading and writing programs, and bringing on high-qualified teachers. It needs ⅔ of the vote, or 66.67%, to pass.
