Heartfelt Gratitude


Dear Editor,

As co-chairs of the Measure S campaign – Say Yes! to Stanislaus Libraries – we would like to express our gratitude to the thousands who endorsed, walked precincts, phoned voters, coordinated local campaigns, volunteered – and voted! – in support of Measure S. The measure, which renews the one-eighth cent sales tax that funds our 13-branch library system, passed with an incredible 82.1 percent approval, thereby guaranteeing the sustainability of our public libraries for the next 12 years. Bravo! It has been our privilege to serve on this campaign and to meet and work with the remarkable citizens of Stanislaus County.

Pat Portwood and Ryan Dziadosz,

Measure S Campaign Co-chairs
