Welcome to the Yes No on Measure N Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your Humboldt County Registrar of Voters printed and circulated ballots for this measure that didn't conform to the law. The registrar ignored our Notice and Demand to follow the law. The legislature makes this a crime. (See: How 25 County Registrars Committed A Crime.)

If you want to get really steamed up about the collusion between your Registrar and Northern Humboldt Union High Schools to lie and cheat in order to steal your taxes, you can read the letter for yourself.

Do you want to give this district a Thanksgiving surprise? Please call or text me (with #HonestBalllots, Humboldt, 0603030, and your name) at 909-378-5401 right now for details. It's urgent and very time-sensitive.

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

This campaign was designed by Isom Advisors. 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.

USE OF ESTIMATES AND PROJECTIONS

Any estimates or projections in the bond measure or ballot materials, such as relating to estimated tax rates, the duration of issued bonds and related tax levies and collections are provided as informational only. Such amounts are estimates and are not maximum amounts or limitations on the terms of the bonds, the tax rate or duration of the tax supporting repayment of issued bonds. Such estimates depend on numerous variables which are subject to variation and change over the term of the District's overall facilities and bond financing plan, including but not limited to the amount of bonds issued and outstanding at any one time, the interest rates applicable to issued bonds, market conditions at the time of sale of the bonds, when bonds mature, timing of project needs and changes in assessed valuations in the District. As such, while such estimates and approximations are provided based on information currently available to the District and its current expectations, such estimates and approximations are not limitations and are not binding upon the District.

The scope and nature of any of the specific projects described above may be altered by the District as required by unforeseen conditions that may arise during the course of design and construction. In the event that a modernization or renovation project is more economical for the District to be undertaken as new construction, this bond measure authorizes land acquisition, relocation, expansion, and construction and/or reconstruction, and all costs relating thereto, for said reason or, alternatively, based on other considerations deemed in the best interest of the District by the Board of Trustees.

In addition, this measure authorizes the acquisition of real property, including necessary rights of ways or other real property interests, required to expand District facilities, to provide access to school or other District facilities, or to provide additional school or related facilities. In addition, authorized projects include reimbursements for paid project costs and paying and/or prepaying interim or previously obtained financing for the types of projects included on the project list, such as bond anticipation notes or lease financings relating to projects and/or equipment previously financed.

Approval of the District's bond measure does not guarantee that all of the identified projects within this Bond Project List will be funded beyond what can be completed with local funds generated by the bond measure. The District plans to pursue funds from the State of California, if available, to complete certain of the identified facilities projects.

The order in which school facilities projects are listed in the foregoing Bond Project List does not suggest an order of priority. Project priorities will be determined by the Board of Trustees. The District is unable to anticipate all unforeseen circumstances which may prevent some of the projects listed above from being undertaken or completed.

3.0 ACTION ITEMS

3.1 Resolution #2/2018-19, Ordering an Election to Authorize the Issuance of Schools Bonds, Establishing Specifications of the Election Order, and Requesting Consolidation with Other Elections Occurring on November 6, 2018

Superintendent Roger Macdonald shared how we have come to point that we are considering another bond measure.

  • ? District finances: We are experiencing flat funding, increase in retirement and health insurance costs; and lack of state facilities funding. We don't qualify for Modernization funds until 2025 and even then we'd have to provide a 60% match. We currently only have about $600,000 in Deferred Maintenance funds. There are loans available but we'd have to make payments back.
  • ? Measure Q addressed the needs we had at the time. We have been working to complete projects that were listed. Mr. Macdonald reviewed our completed projects. We have worked to keep projects near or under budget. Discussed funds and projects remaining on Measure Q.
  • ? Current/future needs: security, ADA accessibility, parking lots, HVAC, roofs, physical education and athletic facilities. Also, technology, energy efficiency and independence, electrical and plumbing infrastructure, bus garage, classroom and meeting space renovations to meet changing needs.
  • ? Why pursue a bond this year? If our community is willing to support us with these needs, Mr. Macdonald feels this is the board's responsibility to consider. Rise in costs, favorable economic situation, costs lower with election, high voter turnout, positive survey results, demonstrated needs with no funding on the horizon, and modernization in 2025 will require a 60% district contribution.

Board discussion on fees for facilities being rented out by community.

Roger shared there would be a tremendous amount of work if we do move forward with a bond measure: project lists and priorities; and community and staff involvement. Colleen asked what the negatives would be for the district. Roger shared increased work to advocate for bond, planning long term and staffing accordingly. On the flip side there will be increased work from not being able to maintain facilities, etc.

July 19, 2012

ACTION ITEMS continued

A bond for $24 million would assist with facilities needs, roofing needs, and physical education facility needs. We would not need to access the bonds until necessary, meaning we could access the funds in ten years instead of rushing to push projects through. If we put it on the ballot and it weren't to pass, what negative would that be? No negative besides no funds.

Jennifer Knight spoke also not wanting to continue to go out for more bonds constantly. Jennifer would like to see the district look at ongoing ways to generate funds to maintain our facilities. How else could we get money without bonds? Cindy Vickers shared attracting more students to our schools is the best way to generate ongoing funds. The better our facilities, the more students you attract.

Board discussed fiscal need and responsibility for our community. Board seemed to be consistent in not wanting to go above the $19 per assessed $100k for taxpayers. Cindy Vickers shared that she believes the $24 million would meet our needs. What would we do if we didn't get bond funds? How will we meet our facility needs?

Jennifer shared concern of rushing to get a bond measure on ballot before we have had time to consider options. Roger agreed it has been a little rushed but with all the issues we've had arise with our latest projects going out to bid we have seen that there is a greater need. If we don't go out for a bond then we have to reconsider what we will be doing with the physical education facilities.

Brian Gerving discussed the increase in costs that will develop by postponing projects. Jennifer wants to know how to reconcile another bond to help complete projects from the last bond.

It was moved by Colleen Toste and seconded by Brian Gerving to approve Resolution 2/2018-19.

Dana wants to see more work put into the project list, how funds will be delved out, etc. Our needs for facilities in 5-8 years may be different.
