The Parasites

There is a full-fledged, multi-billion industry that has grown up around school construction bonds, primarily Proposition 39 bonds because of the low rate of voter approval needed. Some of these firms are consultants or advisors whose main purpose is to manipulate voters into passing bonds from which the firms profit immensely.

The starting point for these firms is not what a district needs, but how much it can persuade the local taxpayers to buy off on. Therefore, I classify these firms as parasites. The parasites feed off the taxpayers but provide no value. The parasites only exist because of greedy governing boards and administrators who represent their own parochial interests, not those of the taxpayers.

The names of the parasites show up time and again prior to and in Stage 1 of the bond cycle.

Depending on the arrangement they make with the district, the parasite's involvement may continue with the 'Yes' committee right up through election day and beyond.
