Argument Against Campbell Union Elementary School District $72,000,000 Bond Issue: Measure CC
In 2010 voters approved a $150,000,000 bond measure for the purpose of “repairing leaky roofs” and “providing disabled access” throughout the district schools.
Now, just 6 years later, they want to do it all over again, for $72,000,000 more in debt, plus interest costs.
Does your home require roof repairs every 6 years?
And one wonders why school roofs require repairs every 6 years.
Why wasn’t access provided to the disabled 6 years ago as promised?
It’s amazing how fast classrooms become obsolete these days.
Can the Campbell Union Elementary School District be trusted with this $72,000,000 bond money debt?
The answer is clearly NO!
They have already been wrongly entrusted with $150 million to upgrade facilities, and now they want another $72 million (saddling us with another 25-30 years of debt!)…to do the same thing all over again.
Are school buildings constructed so poorly that they need repairs every 6 years?
They say they want to upgrade “science equipment and laboratories”, but who buys computer equipment that will be obsolete in 3-5 years by taking out a 25-30 loan?
That’s nuts, right?
No sane person would take out a loan for 25-30 years to buy technology that’s going to be obsolete in 3-5 years. But, that’s just what the District is asking you to do.
Let’s reject these wasteful expenses by voting “NO,” on Measure CC.
Like us, you can be for schools, for students, for teachers, but against Measure CC.
