Sonoma Valley voters extend hospital tax
North Bay Business Journal

Voters in Sonoma Valley on Tuesday easily passed a measure that extends for five years a $195 parcel tax that generates $2.8 million annually for the area’s public hospital.

With all precincts reporting, 73.2 percent of voters approved Measure A, which needed a two-thirds majority to pass, according to the Sonoma County Registrar of Voters. Just more than 10,000 residents took part in the vote, representing a little less than half of the region’s registered voters.
