Welcome to the Yes No on Measure E Campaign


This measure is a Proposition 46 measure requiring two-thirds voter approval. It is written as if it were a Proposition 39 (55%) measure and includes many, many things that are allowable under Proposition 39, but not under Proposition 46. Proposition 46 limits the use of bond proceeds to the "aquisition or improvement of real property." Improvement of real property does not include maintenance and repair. Furthermore, Proposition 39 allows bond funds to be spent on furnishings and equipment which Proposition 46 does not permit.

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

This campaign was designed by Mission Trail Advisors LLC. 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.
