Commentary on Measure K

Are you sure you want vote to support this extravagant measure? It has no accountability.

This campaign was designed by . We figured out just the right words to get you to you to open up your checkbook.

We'd also like to introduce you to our partners -- bond lawyers, brokers, wealthy investors, architects, management firms, construction companies, and trade unions. We all stand to make a ton of money on these bonds. Our profits come right off the top, before a penny is actually spent on improving the facilities.

We're not just doing it for the money. We like to show off our work in Architectural Digest and other places where the rich and famous congregate.

Remember, we've taken a lot of risk. We gave money to get your governing board members elected, so they'd be sure to remember us when we came around for a hand-out later.

It's just business-as-usual, here in sunny Corruptifornia.

Please don't read the fine print. That's just put in by the lawyers to make what we're going to do to for you legal.

Measure K Tax Rate Statement

TAX RATE STATEMENT
KERN HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT

An election will be held in the Kern High School District (the "District") on November 8, 2016, to authorize the sale of up to $280,000,000 in bonds of the District to finance school facilities. Specifically, bond proceeds shall be utilized for the purposes of repairing leaky roofs, aging plumbing, and fire/earthquake safety systems; constructing and equipping new classrooms and schools; expanding and building career training centers for vocational education, agriculture, and biotech; and qualify for State matching funds.

If the bonds are authorized and sold, debt service thereon will be payable from the proceeds of tax levies made upon the taxable property in the District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections 9400-9404 of the Elections Code of the State of California.

  1. 1. The best estimate of the tax which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the first series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.30 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2016 - 2017.
  2. 2. The best estimate of the tax which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the last series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.30 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2022 - 2023.
  3. 3. The best estimate of the highest tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.30 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2016 - 2017.
  4. 4. The best estimate of the average tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the life of the bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.2855 per $100 ($28.55 per $100,000) of assessed valuation.
  5. 5. The best estimate of the total debt service, including principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all the bonds are issued and sold is $354,706,021.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rates are based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on the County's official tax rolls, n_ot on the property's market value. Property owners should consult their own property tax bills to determine their property's assessed value and any applicable tax exemptions.

Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that the foregoing information is based upon the District's projections and estimates only, which are not binding upon the District. The actual tax rates and the years in which they will apply may vary from those presently estimated, due to variations from these estimates in the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold and market interest rates at the time of each sale, and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds.

The dates of sale and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the District based on the need for construction funds and other factors, including the legal limitations on bonds approved by a 55% vote. The actual interest rates at which the bonds will be sold will depend on the bond market at the time of each sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.
