Super Tuesday election 2020: The Voice recommends

In the weeks leading up to Super Tuesday on March 3, the Voice has published endorsements on several local measures and the state Senate District 13 race. Here is a list of our editorial board's recommendations. Read the election news coverage in our Voter Guide and access the editorials through the links below.

Measure D

Vote no on Measure D, which would amend the city's Community Stabilization and Fair Rent Act (CSFRA) to allow landlords to increase monthly rent on tenants by 4% each year regardless of the Consumer Price Index. It would also compel the city's Rental Housing Committee to create a special list of capital improvements that landlords can quickly and easily pass through to tenants as "temporary rent increases;" and exclude mobile home residents from renter protections. (See editorial, Feb. 14)

Measure T

Vote yes on Measure T, a Mountain View Whisman School District $259 million bond initiative that would cost property owners $30 per $100,000 of assessed value and fund school site improvements, short-term growth, teacher and staff housing, and debt repayment. (See editorial, Feb. 28)

Measures G and H

Vote yes on these initiatives from the Foothill-De Anza Community College District. The $898 million Measure G would cost property owners approximately 1.6 cents per $100 of assessed property value for the next 34 years. Measure H, a $48 parcel tax, would provide the two community colleges with approximately $5.6 million annually over five years. (See editorial, Feb. 21)

State Senate District 13 primary

We endorse Mike Brownrigg in this race. (See editorial, Feb. 14)

I always vote the opposite of what the Voice says to do.

I live in Mountain View, the people at the Voice do not. They have an agenda and do not care what is best for our city.
