Commentary on Measure W

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

This campaign was designed by a member of the school bonds cartel. 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.

When you see highlighting in the documents below, it to see the commentary.

Impartial Analysis

HANFORD JOINT UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT
NOVEMBER 2016 BOND MEASURE W

(IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS BY COUNTY COUNSEL PURSUANT TO
SECTION 9500 OF THE ELECTIONS CODE)

Voter approval of this Measure will authorize the governing board of the Hanford Joint Union High School District (the "District") to issue and sell bonds in the maximum amount of Thirty-Three Million Dollars ($33,000,000.00), bearing interest at legal rates and with maturity dates within the legal limits. The bond proceeds may be expended to acquire, construct, expand, repair, modernize, replace, convert, and improve District equipment, classrooms, sites and facilities.

The bond Project List ("List") in the Measure describes the specific projects the District proposes to finance with proceeds from the sale of the bonds. The District may use bond proceeds only for the purposes specified in the Measure. These include, but are not necessarily limited to, improving access to technology and safe drinking water, acquiring, repairing, modernizing, upgrading, replacing and constructing equipment, classrooms, sites and other facilities, replacing outdated heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, making health and safety improvements, and improving accessibility for students with disabilities. The bond proceeds may not be used for purposes not specified in the List, including teacher or administrator salaries or other school operating expenses. Inclusion of a project on the List does not guarantee the project will be funded or completed.

This Measure would require annual, independent performance and financial audits of the use of bond proceeds, appointment of a citizens' oversight committee, and annual reports to the District's governing board.

Information regarding the estimated tax rate to repay these bonds is found in the "Tax Rate Statement" prepared by the District. The actual tax rate necessary to pay the Bond Measure may vary depending on the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold at each sale and actual increases in assessed valuations.

The Measure makes no change to existing law and it must be approved by at least 55% of the eligible votes cast or the bonds will not be issued. This Measure was placed on the ballot by order of the governing board of the District.

Statement in Favor of Measure

Argument in Favor of Measure W

Hanford Joint Union High School District

The students at Hanford Joint Union High School District are some of the most important assets in our community, and we as community members need to ensure our school facilities meet 21st century standards. A YES vote on Measure W would allow the District to make improvements at multiple facilities throughout the District including Instructional Buildings, Athletic and Vocational Education Facilities.

Measure W would provide the District with the needed funds for modernization of aging facilities paid by District property owners. The capital improvement plan put together by the District is a conservative plan, which matches the fiscally conservative values of our community.

If passed, Measure W will make critical facility improvements to local high schools without increasing the current tax rate by:

  • Making health, safety and security improvements
  • Constructing a library/tech center for Sierra Pacific High School students
  • Improving student access to computers and modern technology
  • Modernizing outdated classrooms, restrooms, and school facilities at Hanford High and Hanford West
  • Improving, constructing student facilities for career and vocational education including the Agricultural Farm

Measure W is a fiscally conservative capital improvement plan:

  • Measure W raises funds needed to improve our schools without increasing the current tax rate.
  • By law, spending must be reviewed and annually audited by an .
  • Funds can only be spent to improve local schools, not for teacher or administrator salaries, and cannot be taken by the state.

Measure W modernizes aging classrooms and facilities, improves the education of our local students, and maintains the quality of our community, and these benefits can be accomplished without increasing the current tax rate. To help support the bright future of our students, please join us and VOTE YES ON MEASURE W!

I, the undersigned, hereby state that the words above are true and correct (or are true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information and belief), and the signature and title below is that of my own.

Measure W Tax Rate Statement

Tax Rate Statement

Tax Rate Statement

An election will be held in the Hanford Joint Union High School District (the "District") on November 8, 2016 to authorize the sale of $33,000,000 in general obligation bonds. If such bonds are authorized and sold, principal and interest on the bonds will be payable only from the proceeds of tax levies made on the taxable property in the District. These estimates are based on projections derived from information obtained from official sources and other demonstrable factors. The actual tax rates and the years in which they will apply may vary depending on the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold at each sale, and actual increases in assessed valuations. The following information is submitted in compliance with Sections 9400-9404 of the California Elections Code.

i. The best estimate of the tax rate that would be required 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 $0.0000 per $100 ($00.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2017-18.

ii. The best estimate of the tax rate that would be required 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 $0.0140 per $100 ($14.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2023-24.

iii. The best estimate of the highest tax rate that would be required to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing this statement, is $0.0300 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation, which is projected to be the same in every fiscal year the bonds remain outstanding.

iv. The best estimate from official sources of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all the bonds are issued and sold will be approximately $53.5 million.

Based upon the forgoing and projections of the District's assessed valuation, the timing of the bond sales and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the needs of the District and other factors. Actual assessed valuations will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the Kings County Assessor and by the Tulare County Assessor in the assessment and the equalization process.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rates are based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property in the District as shown on the County's official tax rolls, not 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.
