The Mercury News

The parent organization of Seton Medical Center, which hopes to receive a subsidy to help finance an expensive, state-required, seismic upgrade, donated an additional $284,347 earlier this month for Measure A — San Mateo County’s half-cent sales tax hike proposal on the Nov. 6 ballot. Campaign disclosure documents filed Friday show that the “Coalition to Protect Critical San Mateo County Services for Children, Families and Seniors, Yes on Measure A” committee raised $345,617 from Oct. 1 to 20.
