City Council member Margaret McAustin will convene a community meeting to present and discuss Measures I & J, which Pasadena citizens will vote on this Nov. 6. City Manager Steve Mermel will speak at this meeting, and PUSD School Board members Pat Cahalan and Elizabeth Pomeroy will also be in attendance.
PEN has endorsed both measures. Measure I would raise the local sales tax by 3/4 of a cent to protect essential city services and guarantee that additional sales tax revenue stays in our community. Measure J advises the city to support our public schools as one of those vital city services. (Read PEN’s endorsement statement.)
