Measure J

The Measure J committee is delighted that Orinda voters once again supported our wonderful library by passing Measure J with a 72 percent "yes" vote! This will ensure that the library is open seven days a week, and will continue to offer numerous popular programs, well into the future.
Thanks go to all the yes voters, as well as to our great campaign volunteers who put out signs, wrote thank-you notes, and helped with all the other campaign work. Michelle Bea designed our beautiful logo. Special thanks to Linda Landau, volunteer extraordinaire, who served as our campaign treasurer, but was crucial to every aspect of this effort. Kudos also to local newspapers who helped spread the word and educate voters. More thanks go to all those who donated and helped pay for the campaign flyers, signs, and website.
Special thanks go to major donors Jane and Mark Zuercher, Finola Fellner, Betty Lou Cutter, Lynn and Ira Dubinsky, Senator Steve Glazer, Sue Severson, Sharon Simpson, Republic Services, PG&E Corporation, and Village Associates.
We love our Orinda Library!

Susie Epstein and Liz Daoust, Co-chairs
