Commentary on Measure JJ

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 for Measure JJ

COUNTY COUNSEL IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS

This measure was placed on the ballot by the Solana Beach School District ("District") for the School Facilities Improvement District No. 2016-1 of the Solana Beach School District ("SFID"). This measure, if approved by 55% of the votes cast on the measure, will authorize the District to issue and sell $105,000,000 in general obligation bonds. The sale of these bonds is for the purpose of raising money for the SFID, and represents a debt of the District on behalf of the SFID. In exchange for the money received from the bond holders, the District promises to pay the holders an amount of interest for a certain period of time, and to repay the bonds on the expiration date.

Voter approval of this measure will also authorize an annual tax to be levied upon the taxable property within the SFID. The purpose of this tax is to generate sufficient revenue to pay interest on the bonds as it becomes due and to provide a fund for payment of the principal on or before maturity.

Proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this measure may be used within the SFID for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, or the acquisition or lease of real property for school facilities.

The interest rate on any bond, which is established at the time of bond issuance, could not exceed 12% per annum. The final maturity date of any bond could be no later than 30 years after the date the bonds are issued as determined by the District.

The tax authorized by this measure is consistent with the requirements of the California Constitution. The California Constitution permits property taxes, above the standard one percent (1%) limitation, to be levied upon real property to pay the interest and redemption charges on any bonded indebtedness for, among other things, the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, when approved by 55% of the voters if:

N SD 433-146
PR-38H0-JJ-2
COUNTY COUNSEL IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS (CONTINUED)

(1) the proceeds from the sale of the bonds are used only for the purposes specified,

(2) the District, by evaluating safety, class size reduction, and information technology needs, has approved a list of specific projects to be funded,

(3) the District will conduct an annual, independent performance audit, and

(4) the District will conduct an annual, independent financial audit.

If a bond measure is approved, state law requires the District to establish an independent citizens' oversight committee. The District has made this ballot measure subject to these requirements.

Approval of this measure does not guarantee that the proposed projects in the SFID that are the subject of these bonds will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by this measure.

A "YES" vote is a vote in favor of authorizing the District to issue and sell $105,000,000 in general obligation bonds.

A "NO" vote is a vote against authorizing the District to issue and sell $105,000,000 in general obligation bonds.

Statement provided pursuant to California Education Code Section 15272:

If this Bond measure is approved, the Solana Beach School District Board of Education will appoint a citizens' oversight committee and conduct annual independent audits to assure that bond funds are spent only on school and classroom improvements and for no other purposes.

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE JJ

KEEP OUR SCHOOLS GREAT!

Solana Beach is one of the top-ranked districts in San Diego County. The schools also provide playing fields and other facilities utilized by the entire community and enhance the value of homes and businesses within its boundaries.

Unfortunately, the quality and condition of many existing school facilities do not measure up to the District's academic reputation. Some facilities are more than 40 years old and require extensive repairs and modernization. Seventeen percent of classrooms are portables.

Pressing needs include modern classroom facilities required for today's courses in math, science, engineering, arts and technology, improvement of student safety and campus security systems, and repair of deteriorating roofs, plumbing and outdated electrical systems.

Measure JJ authorizes $105 million in general obligation bonds to implement the District's Long-Range Facilities Master Plan and access state matching funds when they become available. Bond proceeds will pay for complete redesign/reconstruction of Skyline and Solana Vista schools and modernization at Solana Highlands, Solana Santa Fe, Carmel Creek, Solana Pacific and Solana Ranch.

Improvements at every school will include security, access control, and surveillance systems, exterior lighting and fencing, shade structures, play structures and kindergarten play areas, heating and air conditioning, interior lighting, drought tolerant landscaping and irrigation controls, child nutrition kitchens and student dining areas.

Measure JJ guarantees bond proceeds will only be used for construction, reconstruction, modernization, or replacement of school facilities, all proceeds from the bond will stay in the District (they cannot be taken away by state government), and . Measure JJ requires appointment of an to ensure funds are spent as promised, and requires annual reporting and audits.

Please join parents, teachers, taxpayers and community leaders in voting Yes on Measure JJ to keep our schools great!

REBUTTAL TO ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE JJ

Measure JJ's tax increase is unfair to seniors and fixed income property owners.

Measure JJ would give District $105 million at a cost of $196 million to taxpayers over decades.

A $700,000 property can expect $210 more taxes per year for decades if Measure JJ passes.

Worse the estimated highest tax rate of $30.00 per $100,000 is not guaranteed. IT COULD BE HIGHER if necessary to pay back this loan from Wall Street!

Solana taxpayers already pay these property taxes:

Countywide Proposition 13
San Dieguito High School Bond 2012
Metropolitan Water District

STOP TAXING US TO DEATH!

Some facilities need renovation and repair. What are District's priorities? Why won't District give you a specific list guaranteeing in order the specific projects they will build with this loan? District's promised Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee is a toothless tiger. Measure JJ lacks a specific prioritized project list with estimated costs so voters and Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee can measure accountability.

Worse, many bond funded contracts will be handed out without competitive bidding that has historically protected schools from wasted funds, fostered healthy market competition, allowed all qualified bidders a fair opportunity to participate and protected against fraud, favoritism, corruption. Google: Sweetwater school pay to play OR Fresno Leaseback FBI Arax.

Vote NO until these problems are fixed.

ARGUMENT AGAINST MEASURE JJ

Don't be a victim of The School Bond Scam! (www.schoolbondscam.org)

News articles and campaign finance disclosures show Wall Streeters, contractors and consultants pay money to pass school bonds for their immediate profit leaving each taxpayer with decades of additional debt. Google: "Local School Bonds: Big Donors Win Big Contracts" OR Orange County Register's "Bankers Push School Bonds for C.A.S.H."

The School Bond Scammers gladly pay to pass bonds anticipating school boards will reward them with inflated no bid contracts in return. Google: Sweetwater school pay to play OR Fresno Leaseback FBI Arax.

Voice of San Diego's August 6, 2012 investigative report revealed Poway School District's "Capital Appreciation Bonds" put their taxpayers on the hook to pay back about $1 billion for their $105 million bond. Google: "Thanks a Billion"

California Taxpayers Action Network (www.caltan.org) is not against all school bonds and has supported those (i.e. Walnut Valley Unified School District) that contain proper internal controls to prevent waste and encourage good value for taxpayers.

This bond does not include such taxpayer protections. Contracts can be handed to favored contractors and consultants without regard to price!

Worse, this bond lacks a prioritized Project List with estimated project costs for each and a commitment to build the proposed projects in the promised prioritized order. This bond allows pet projects to be built instead of necessary ones.

Why does District need another bond so soon after their last one? Did they handout over priced contracts and put in astroturf fields with the last bond instead of making needed classroom repairs?

Vote NO until they propose a better bond next election.

California Taxpayers Action Network is a San Diego based all-volunteer, statewide network of taxpayer advocates who promote sound fiscal policies, practices and business methods by government entities for the public's benefit and protection.

REBUTTAL TO ARGUMENT AGAINST MEASURE JJ

Don't be misled by an outsider with a political agenda.

The individual who wrote the argument against Measure JJ doesn't live anywhere near our community and filed the exact same argument against many other school bonds throughout the county, ignoring the facts regarding our local schools.

Here are the facts:

  •  Measure JJ contains strict taxpayer protections. Proceeds from the bond can only be used for construction, reconstruction, modernization or replacement of school facilities.
  •  The Solana Beach School District has never before proposed a school bond. Most of the District's schools are more than 20 years old, some as old as 61 years, and in desperate need of facility upgrades.
  •  The District developed an in-depth project list to ensure taxpayer dollars are being spent where they are most needed. Areas like student safety and security, modern classroom facilities for science, technology, research, engineering, arts, and math (STREAM) will be prioritized.
  •  Failure to pass Measure JJ risks losing $20 million in matching state funds. Surrounding districts will put our tax dollars to work, while our local school infrastructure backlog expands.

Measure JJ will improve our local schools, save taxpayers millions by locking in today's low interest rates, and contribute to increased property values. Join parents, teachers, businesses, and community leaders in supporting Measure JJ.

Vote Yes on Measure JJ

Project costs may also include the and/or . when performing work on, or to, bond projects. Allowable project costs also include: costs of issuing the bonds or other securities (as authorized under California law), informational distribution costs and election costs authorized under State law.

This School Facilities Project List describes the specific facilities and capital projects the District may finance with proceeds of the Bonds. Listed projects will be completed at a particular school site according to Board-established priorities, and the order in which such projects appear on this School Facilities Project List is not an indication of priority for funding or completion. The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded, and projects are completed. Certain construction funds expected from nonbond sources, including State grant funds for eligible projects, have not yet been secured. Until all project costs and funding sources are known, the Board of Education cannot determine the amount of bond proceeds available to be allocated for each project, nor guarantee that the bonds will provide sufficient funds to allow completion of all listed projects. Completion of some projects may be subject to further government approvals by State officials and boards, to local environmental review, and to input from the public. For these reasons, inclusion of a project on the Bond Project List is not a guarantee that the project will be funded or completed.

In preparing the foregoing list, the Board of Education of the Solana Beach School District has evaluated safety, class size and information technology needs.

The District will also aggressively pursue funds from the State of California to complete facilities projects.

No Administrator Salaries. Proceeds from the sale of Bonds authorized by this proposition shall be used only for the construction, acquisition, repair, renovation, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, or the lease of real property for school facilities as identified herein, and not for any other purpose, including teacher and and other operating expenses.

The bonds shall bear interest at a rate, or rates, to be established at such time as the bonds are sold, in one or more series, at interest rates not to exceed the maximum applicable statutory rate for such bonds. If such bonds are authorized and sold, the principal thereof and the interest thereon are a general obligation of the School District, on behalf of the Improvement District, payable from the proceeds of ad valorem taxes on real property located within the boundaries of the Improvement District.

TAX RATE STATEMENT (CONTINUED)

(a) The best estimate from official sources of the tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund the bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement or a projection based on experience within the same jurisdiction or other demonstrable factors, is $0.030 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation. It is estimated that this tax rate would apply in the 2017-2018 tax year.
(b) It is currently anticipated that the bonds will be sold in multiple series The best estimate from official sources of the tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund such bond issue during the first fiscal year after the final sale of the bonds based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement or a projection based on experience within the same jurisdiction or other demonstrable factors is $0.030 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation. It is estimated that this tax rate would apply in the 2019-2020 tax year.
(c) The best estimate from official sources of the highest tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund the bond issues during the term of the bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement or a projection based on experience within the same jurisdiction or other demonstrable factors, is $0.030 per $100 ($30.0021 per $100,000) of assessed value.

(d) 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 $196,490,231.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rates are based on the assessed value of taxable property within the Improvement District as shown on the official rolls of San Diego County, not on the property's market value. In addition, taxpayers eligible for a property tax exemption, such as the homeowner's exemption, will be taxed at a lower effective rate than described above. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the San Diego County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process. Property owners should consult their own property tax bills and/or tax advisors to determine their property's assessed value and any applicable tax exemptions.

Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that these estimates are based on assumptions and projections derived from information obtained from official sources. The actual tax rates and the years in which they will apply may vary depending on the timing of any bond sales, the amount of bonds sold, market interest rates at the time of each sale of bonds and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds. The timing of the bond sales and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be governed by the needs of the School District, 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 the bond sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the Improvement District as determined by the San Diego County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.
