I would think the rise in home value news would bring more "No On Measure J" and "Maybe On Measure J" people to vote "Yes On Measure J".
Ummm or it might go the opposite direction given that NOBODY likes the cost of Property Taxes in the state of California. My folks owned a house in Sonora and their taxes were right around $2500 a year for a house on less than 2/3 of an acre. That was in the 80's-90's. When my dad had to be medically retired, $2500 was too much (on top of the hospital bills) they moved. Your property value goes up yes. But so do your taxes based on the new value. If I owned in that area I would vote no based on just that issue alone.
