Argument Against San Benito High School District $60,000,000 Bond Issue: Measure L

How greedy can you get?

Just 6 years ago, voters approved $42,500,000 in bond debt to “improve school safety” and in 2016 $60,000,000 in additional debt and “improve access for persons with disabilities” and “repair outdated electrical systems”.

Now they want $30,000,000 to do the same thing all over again???

Do classrooms really need to be upgraded every four years?

Have they even spent the $42,500,000 from the 2014 bond measure or the $60,000,000 from 2016?

If not, why are they asking for more of your hard-earned tax dollars?

When school boards put bond measures like Measure L before the voters, they are admitting that everything they are currently spending your tax dollars on now is more important than the projects for which this tax increase is being sought. 

Budgets set priorities.  San Benito High School District is saying every educational dollar spent today is going to something they consider a higher priority than "student safety". 

Do you agree?

The website: shows at least 3,066 students in the district, which means this bond expense is $9,784 per student on top of the $14,579 per student expense from the 2014 bond measure and $19,933 per student from the 2016 bond and that’s not counting interest costs and repayment of principal.

As a taxpayer, you deserved to know the full truth about measure L.

If you value children's health and safety more than funding tax free shelters for bond funds and big banks, then vote NO on Measure L.

If you value school maintenance more than making interest payments for 25-30  years, vote NO on Measure L.
