While San Mateo County officials maintain they have yet to decide how to distribute $60 million a year if the Measure A half-cent sales tax increase passes on Nov. 6, Seton Medical Center and its parent group have donated $885,868 to the campaign. The Daly City hospital admits it could use a slice of the tax revenue to pay for costly state-required seismic safety work.

The $765,805 Seton donated and $120,063 its parent organization, Daughters of Charity Health System, chipped in together account for roughly 90 percent of the $990,970 raised so far by the “Yes on Measure A” campaign, finance statements released Friday show.
