---------------VOTE NO-------------------------
Once again we are asked to encumber ourselves,and our neighbors who are not even living in the neighborhood yet for more money, (bonds are nothing but credit card debt.) even though a lot, (±$90/parcel+$183m+new construction/sf+ 0.145% of your property assessment + plus ???from the state) has been received and used for many of the same needs that are on this new "list".
Don't be deceived by the "oversite" (aka rubber stamp) committee. It's too late when the committee gets to ask questions.

DUSD ($290 Million) and PUSD ($323 Million) Bond measure should be defeated on March 3 elections. With record tax collections, record funding from the State and Federal Government why are these school districts asking for more funds? The Administrators of PUSD and DUSD should learn how to fund improvements from Tax and Lottery allocations. Bond is very expensive way of funding school capital spending. Tax Payers end up paying 3 times the Bond measure over the maturity period of the Bond. People should overwhelmingly vote NO on DUSD and PUSD Bond Measure.
