Back in March (3/2/16), the OC Reg reported:
The Irvine Unified School District will ask voters in June to approve a facilities bond measure that would raise money to improve aging school facilities.
The school board on Tuesday unanimously approved the formation of a school facilities improvement district encompassing 28 campuses and said it would seek $319 million in bond revenue to those schools.
Only voters within the district will get to cast a vote on the measure – and only campuses within it will get funds for improvements.
Residential and commercial property owners would pay a yearly tax of $29 per $100,000 of assessed value if the measure is approved. At least 55 percent of voters would need to be in favor….
You can read all about Irvine’s Measure E at the OC Registrar of Voters website. Or click here. Or, at the ocvoter.com website, search under “measure e Irvine.”
According to the Registrar, the usual suspects favor Measure E:
The following individuals signed the official argument in favor of the measure:
Mark Warschauer, Professor & Interim Dean, UCI School of Education
Paul A. Bokota, IUSD School Board President
Gavin Huntley-Fenner, Business Owner
Connie Stone, Irvine Unified PTA President
Cyril Yu, IUSD Finance Comittee/Deputy District Attorney
|G. Rick Marshall|
These “pro” and “con” arguments have rebuttals, too, you know.
And get this. Among the signatories of the rebuttal to Marshall's “con” argument (that is, among the pro-E crowd) is none other than Glenn R. [the "R" is for "Republican"] Roquemore, President of Irvine Valley College and inveterate Neander of Thals.
Are you, Glenn?
