Passing a parcel tax will be very tough but the Fairfield-Suisun School District has a good shot at success if the campaign for the measure is done well, the school board was told Thursday.
Gene Bregman, whose Santa Cruz County-based public opinion and marketing research firm surveyed 404 residents within the school district boundaries, said a $74 parcel tax is too high and the chances of passage are quite slim.
The telephone survey found that 71 percent of respondents would support a $49 parcel tax, while 64 percent supported a $74 tax. Two-thirds voter approval is needed for passage, Bregman said.
