November 2018 School Ballot Measures

November 2018 Ballot Measures

#HonestBallots Movement

Have you given up hope on ever having an honest school bond election in your district?

Yes, the game is rigged. It's also illegal.

Join the #HonestBallots Movement and learn how to vindicate your right to fair and impartial elections. It will all happen after election day, but not too far after. Give your district a Thanksgiving surprise that it will never forget!

This is a preliminary list of big bad California school bond measures on the November 2018 ballot around the state.

Are they all bad?

My criteria is simple. It's the California Constitution, Article XIII-A, Section 1(b)(3)(B). Is the measure a "list of the specific school facility projects to be funded?" Not a single one of these bonds meet that criteria. It's not an accident. A small set of lawyers that write the measures tell the districts NOT to put the list in the measure. That's a direct violation of the lawyer's oath to support the California Constitution and the State Bar of California's Rules of Professional Conduct. (Amazing what huge amounts of money does to people, isn't it?)

In fact, it's also likely a conspiracy between bond counsel and the district to commit fraud on the public because bond counsel (due to its contingency contract) and the district both want the 55% voter approval level, but the district doesn't want to commit to a specific list which might lead to, heaven forbid, true oversight or even lawsuits.

That doesn't absolve the district, but it does condemn the lawyers, usually bond counsel. These bond counsel are all members of the school bonds cartel. If you think this is outrageous, I have a plan, but you have to Sign Up to get into the protected areas of this site to participate. (See The Art of War.)

Until the argument and rebuttal filing deadlines have passed, this is a collaborative, private page for members only. By collaboration, I mean that YOU are helping to fill in the missing information for each measure. You must be reliable in your research. There is no room for error.

It's pretty simple. TANSTAAFL. You exchange your help in researching for access to this page.

The information must be provided in a specific form. Sending e-mail messages with random information creates more work than it's worth. It's just too much work for me, with everything else I'm doing, to try and analyze an e-mail message. It likely takes me more time to parse and verify a message than it does to do the research from scratch.
