At approximately 10 a.m. (subject to change) following a Housing Board meeting, the Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution supporting Marin Strong Start for all of Marin’s children. Strong Start is a grassroots coalition working to ensure successful futures for kids in the county. Access to quality preschool, comprehensive health care, wellness services, childcare and after-school academic support is linked to higher academic achievement, successful careers and health, economically vibrant communities. In its draft resolution, the Board said it supports the efforts of Strong Star to develop a dedicated funding stream for essential programs.
The Board adopted the resolution and wished the program luck with a planned local tax measure in 2016.
