Gov. Gavin Newsom stopped by Mark Twain Elementary School, in Long Beach, Friday afternoon, Feb. 28, to tout a $15-billion California bond measure meant to improve state schools, colleges and universities.
This year’s Proposition 13 — not to be confused with the more famous 1978 amendment that essentially froze property taxes — will appear on the ballot during the Tuesday, March 3, election.
Newsom visited the Long Beach school as part of his statewide get-out-the-vote tour. Long Beach has historically had low voter turnout.
