Welcome to the Yes No on Measure P Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your San Bernardino 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 Chaffey College 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, San Bernardino, 92, 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 RBC Capital Markets (Frank Vega). 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.

Community College Facts

What California community college districts don't want you to know!

When I refer to they, I mean the administrators, staff, deans, and all the title-laden academic bureaucrats, who milk the system to become millionaires on the public dime. These are the people with the $100,000+ salaries and $100,000+ pensions. They like hobnobbing with the rich and famous.

The following facts are general in nature. There are always exceptions to the rule. Some motivated students do make great use of the system. How many, no one knows (purposely). That way they can make all kinds of claims that warm the cockles of your heart, that are based on nothing but anecdotes and wishful thinking. Without parents breathing down their necks, they can get away with anything they want.

Community college foundations fund bond elections.
This surprised me. How can donors who get tax deductions pay for political campaigns with their donations? Easy! Launder it through community college foundations. More than 90% of community college bond elections are funded solely by the college's charitable foundation. They only get away with it because you don't report it to the FBI and the IRS.
They're going virtual.
The first virtual community college has already gone online. All those buildings and other facilities are about to become obsolete. Think about all those stadiums and sports complexes the districts want to build. Heck, they could do the web hosting in Estonia and no one would be the wiser.
California Constitution Is Silent
Unlike K-12, the University of California system, and the California State University System community colleges are not given any recognition in the state constitution. The legislature could end them tomorrow. (The legislature won't because they provide high-paying, unaccountable employment for many public employees.)
Adult Babysitting/Marijuana Haven
A hefty percentage of students spend time hanging out, using all the cool Internet services, smoking weed, and partying.
College Promise
They have to give their services away for free. College Promise is the latest fraud. The colleges already give away courses to enrolled high school students*, now they're giving course to graduates. This stuff is a way to counteract the lack of interest.
*It's also double dipping, because both the college and the school district get state money for the dually enrolled high school student.
State Funding
They all compete with each other to get their FTES (full-time equivalent student) (ADA average daily attendance for K-12). Remember back in 2017 when the entire California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) (another layer of pure bureaucracy) and all the college bureacrats were wetting their diapers when Trump announced that he was ending DACA. One has to wonder if the entire business model, if you can even call it that, is based on a steady stream of government programs.
Fees For Everything
Unlike free public schools, community colleges can charge for anything. The more revenue streams the better. That's what keeps bureaucrats busy, busy, busy. With a student ID, a lot of stuff is free to use. Even though you pay for it all, if you want to use it, you can't. How much money do you think these districts collect in parking fees and fines every year?
Performance Statistics
Good luck if you want to find out whether you're getting your money's worth. With the meager and often irrelevant data that the CCCCO collects and it's equally worthless data query tools, you can spend hours trying to compare one college to another and end up giving up. The collleges don't want you to know the facts. Then they can make up their rosy propaganda without anyone being able to hold them accountable.
Out-of-District Students
Since the legislature removed the tuition penalty for out-of-district students, community colleges have become marketing machines, spending huge amounts on recruitment. They recruit students from all over the country and all over the world. Foreign students and out-of-state students are especially lucrative. Athletes from everywhere in the world fill the rosters for sports programs, all paid for with your taxes.
The big wigs don't like to call themselves superintendents.
They prefer big-boy or big-girl or big-whatever pants. They like titles like Chancellor, President, CEO, and all the corporate C-level titles. Unlike private corporations, however, they feed at the public trough.
Pushing for four-year degrees.
They want always want more money. They've been pushing the legislature for years to get to offer four-year degrees. The pilot programs are being extended.

Remind me again. Why are taxpayers paying for this?

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

The following statement was prepared in the hope the legislature would suspend the law (AB-195) that required districts to inform you of the amount of taxes for which you're voting. It's all about deceiving the voters. The school bonds cartel has no shame. It just wants your money. The ends justify the means.

One of the notorious budget trailer bills was amended in May to allow the district to keep you in the dark. Unfortunately for them, Dan Walters got wind of it and castigated the legislature for their sleazy and unscrupulous conduct. The budget trailer bill never came to a vote before the August 10 filing deadline. So the issue is moot.

Argument Against Measure P

Argument in Opposition to Measure P

As a graduate of Chaffey College like many living in the district I can understand the need for good facilities, but as taxpayers we are being nickel and dimed by each school district in our region. Just because one district files for a school bond should not mean a need for each district to max out their credit lines when many of these districts already have previous bonds in circulation we are still paying for.

Bit by bit these school bonds do add up where they cost nearly ten percent of a property tax owners tax bill. The problem with these bond issues is that they do not directly communicate the actual shopping list until the bond issue gets on the ballot which is unfair for the electorate and the taxpayer.

Taxpayers want to know the big picture about their investment with Chaffey College. We want to know if the new campus in Ontario will be more comprehensive than what happened when the Chino campus was first built, or will we need a secondary bond a decade later to add new buildings for Chino. What will the college administration and their consultants proportion out in the planned spending in net cost from the proceeds?

Without complete information this alum and other taxpayers do not feel this bond is worth supporting.

Rebuttal to Argument Against Measure P

We agree with the author of the opposing argument that, when it comes to Chaffey College, there's an important need for good facilities. That's why we're supporting Measure P.

Measure P funds can only support projects outlined in the voter-approved legally-binding project list. The District has a proven track record of saving $21.8 million with bond refinancings and spending taxpayers' dollars carefully and responsibly, as evidenced by the Citizens' Oversight Committee reports and annual audits for its last bond, passed in 2002.

Chaffey College provides an outstanding education for local residents and veterans and Measure P addresses our most urgent needs that cannot be ignored.

Many college buildings are 50 years old and student growth and regular wear and tear has taken place in the 16 years since Chaffey College passed a bond. There is no other funding source to address these problems -and the longer we wait, the more expensive these improvements will become. Measure P will:

  • 0 Establish a comprehensive campus focusing on transfer programs and local job training in Ontario
  • 0 Upgrade aging classrooms and lab capacity in Chino, Fontana and Rancho for science, technology, engineering, and math to better prepare students for transfer and good- paying jobs
  • 0 Repair deteriorating gas, electrical and sewer lines and fix leaky roofs
  • 0 Upgrade job training facilities
  • 0 Improve student safety and security systems
  • 0 Upgrade and expand facilities for veterans' services and job training

Chaffey College is an essential part of the community. Protecting high-quality, affordable higher education is a wise investment. Join us in voting YES on Measure P.

PROJECTS

The Governing Board of the Chaffey Community College District, to be responsive to the needs of its community, evaluated Chaffey College's urgent and critical facility needs, and its capacity to provide students, including Veterans with support and job training facilities, an affordable education and prepare them for success in college and careers. Job training facilities, safety issues, class size and offerings, and information and computer technology were each considered in developing the types of projects to be funded by this measure, as such are described below and also outlined in the District's Vision 2025 Facilities Master Plan, as updated by the 2018 Addendum, presented to the Board on June 28, 2018 and incorporated herein by reference in its entirety (together, the "Master Plan"), and available for review on the District's website, www.chaffey.edu. In developing the types of projects, basic repairs (such as removing asbestos and mold, repairing deteriorating, electrical and sewer lines and improving access for disabled students), job training facilities, student safety, facilities supporting Veterans, and the expansion of opportunities for local students to receive an affordable, quality education, were prioritized. If these facility needs are not addressed now, Chaffey College will be unable to remain competitive in preparing students for jobs in high demand industries and university transfer.

The Governing Board determines that Chaffey College MUST:

  1. (i)Provide an affordable local education and transfer to four-year universities;
  2. (ii)Provide job training and vocational programs that are needed to keep the InlandEmpire economy strong;
  3. (iii)Respond to the changing economy by upgrading science, and technology, classrooms and labs so students have up-to-date skills and access to modern technology;
  4. 12 7/9/18 Special Board Meeting
    B-2
    DOCSSF/145291v4/022000-0001

  5. (iv)Ensure that Chaffey College expands access so more students can enroll in high-quality and affordable education programs to help students transfer to a four year college and allow high school students to get a jumpstart taking college courses;
  6. (v)Make basic repairs to old buildings, remove dangerous asbestos, mold, lead paint, fix leaky roofs and deteriorating gas, sewer, electrical lines, restrooms and plumbing;
  7. (vi)Be held accountable for the use of these funds, including having independent citizen oversight.

The following types of projects which are authorized to be undertaken at Chaffey College, include:

PROVIDE AN AFFORDABLE EDUCATION IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LOCAL STUDENTS AND VETERANS:

Basic Upgrade Projects Needed Allow Chaffey
College to Provide Job Training and Vocational
Programs That Are Needed To Keep the Local Economy Strong

Goals and Purposes: Several buildings on our local community college campus were built in the 1960s and need basic health, safety and technology improvements. Funds will be used to upgrade science and technology classrooms and labs; remove asbestos and lead paint; repair leaky roofs and deteriorating classrooms, gas, sewer, and electrical lines, restrooms and plumbing; ensure water fountains have clean drinking water, and upgrade security and fire safety systems so students can learn in safe, healthy classrooms.

Chaffey College is an essential resource for students seeking vocational education that provides the job training, technical knowledge, and specialized skills to compete for high paying, modern careers. This bond measure will aid Chaffey College to upgrade vocational education programs so students can be trained and learn the skills for high-demand jobs they need to get a job in a competitive 21st century global economy.

Measure P Tax Rate Statement

TAX RATE STATEMENT

An election will be held in the Chaffey Community College District (the "District") on November 6, 2018, to authorize the sale of up to $700,000,000 in bonds of the District to finance facilities as described in the proposition. If the bonds are approved, the District expects to issue the bonds in multiple series over time. Principal and interest on the bonds 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 through 9405 of the California Elections Code.

  1. 1. The best estimate of the average annual tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue over the entire duration of the bond debt service, based on assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 1.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation (or $15.0 per $100,000 of assessed value). The final fiscal year in which the tax to be levied to fund this bond issue is anticipated to be collected is fiscal year 2057-58.
  2. 2. The best estimate of the highest tax rate that 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 1.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation (or $15.0 per $100,000 of assessed value) in fiscal year 2019-20.
  3. 3. The best estimate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is approximately $1,419,576,325.
  4. 4. It is estimated that the combined tax rate from Measure _ and Measure L, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing this statement, is 2.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation (or $25.0 per $100,000 of assessed value), equal to the amount approved by voters in 2002.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rate is based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on the County of San Bernardino 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.

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, debt service 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 need for construction funds and other factors. 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.

Measure P Agenda Description

Minutes of June 28, 2018 (complete item)

Facilities Master Plan Addendum

Dr. Shannon mentioned that the addendum relates to the bond measure. Vice President Melanie Siddiqi stated that over the past few months the college has been working on the possibility of going out for a bond. The College has been working with HMC Architects to determine facility needs to go beyond 2025. Focus groups with students and surveys have been conducted and are included in the plan. Ms. Siddiqi introduced Sheryl Sterry from HMC who presented on the following: objectives, planning process, input from students and employees, linkages to institutional goals, district-wide projects, Chino Campus recommendations, Fontana Campus recommendations, Rancho Cucamonga Campus recommendations, Ontario Campus recommendations, and cost plan.

Mr. McDougal asked if this plan includes more office space and ample gathering space for students. Ms. Siddiqi explained that collaboration space has been incorporated in all of the instructional buildings. There was also discussion on solar battery storage being included in the plan.

Ms. McCloud asked about if the proposed new building at the Chino Campus would affect parking. There was discussion on a new parking area and shipping containers being used as a campus store and food services at Chino.

Ms. McCloud mentioned that it is very difficult to turn left onto any street off Sierra Avenue and that there should be an alternate entrance. There was discussion on working with the city on adding a traffic signal.

Ms. McCloud asked why the library would be removed instead of being renovated since it is not that old. Ms. Siddiqi responded that it is more cost effective to build a new building and that the existing building will be significantly larger.

Mr. McDougal asked how the neighbors would react to a parking structure, and it was explained that the parking structure is a two-level structure with the 06/28/18—Page 3 top level being level with the existing parking lot south of SSA and will not have a high profile. Dr. Shannon added that the College plans to hold community meetings to share the College's vision and make sure the neighbors are comfortable with the construction.

Ms. McCloud asked about the purpose of an Ontario campus. She does not think it is cost effective to have a center that only offers niche programs for very few students. Dr. Shannon responded that the College would work within the confines of the space and the needs of the mayor and city council. Dr. Randall mentioned that logistics and health care programs are needed in Ontario. She stated that they want to place complete programs at the site, such as a paralegal program. Mr. Ovitt explained that about a quarter of the students attending Chaffey College are from Ontario and it would be beneficial for the College to collaborate with the City of Ontario. Dr. Shannon mentioned it is still a work in progress.

Ms. Sterry explained that the project list and implementation schedule were used to prepare a cost plan recommending a proposed budget of $1.093 billion. Dr. Shannon explained that the amount would be scaled down based on the polling results.

Future Bond Considerations Update

Vice President Melanie Siddiqi explained that another action that has been taken has been to engage a strategist to properly prepare for the possibility of going out for a bond. The previous poll's responses were mostly positive, but there were a significant amount of unknowns. In recent weeks, a follow-up poll has been conducted to determine how the outreach efforts have worked. Ms. Siddiqi introduced Mr. Boigon from TBWB and Mr. Fairbank from FM3 Research. The presentation included: methodology, general community attitudes, summary of attitudes on potential bond measure, summary of demographics of initial support for the measure and conclusions.

Ardon Alger asked if the education program helped the results and Mr. Fairbank believes that it was beneficial and that the College should keep it up. Mr. Boigon explained that the team will now work on developing a draft bond measure. Dr. Shannon asked that if any of the Board members would like to visit any of the sites before voting at the July meeting on whether to go forward with a bond measure, it could be arranged.

Frank Vega from RBC Capital Markets discussed the assumptions: $530 million was the conservative floor, which is an extension of Measure L, and $930 million is the top. The floor can be changed to $700 million.

Bond Counsel David Casnocha discussed the process for placing a bond measure on the ballot. The resolution must be approved by four votes of the Board, not a simple majority. After Board approval, the resolution is submitted 06/28/18—Page 4

TOPIC

Resolution No. 7918: Resolution of the Governing Board of the Chaffey Community College District Ordering an Election, and Establishing Specifications of the Election Order

Communication No. I.C.2.a

SUPPORTS BOARD POLICY

Board Policy 6600 Capital Construction – The District will improve the physical learning environment and access by upgrading and renovating current facilities and adding additional facilities as appropriate, within the limits of District resources.

PROPOSAL

It is recommended that the Governing Board approve Resolution No. 7918 authorizing a bond election for November 6, 2018.

BACKGROUND

The resolution before the Board calls an election within the District for the purpose of approving general obligation bonds, requests that the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters conduct the election on behalf of the District, and authorizes the preparation of election materials, including ballot arguments and tax rate statement, to be included in the ballot pamphlet.

State law requires the Governing Board to order community college district bond elections. The Registrar of Voters will conduct the election on behalf of the District, including publishing all required notices. This resolution meets the statutory requirements for describing the projects to be funded with the proceeds of the bonds, which are included as Exhibit B to the resolution. A 75-word summary of the measure, as it will appear on the ballot, is also included in the resolution as Exhibit A. Alternate ballot language is included in Exhibit A-1 in the event that AB 195 is suspended. The resolution also authorizes the preparation and filing of a tax rate statement, which must be included in the ballot pamphlet and describes the anticipated rates of tax throughout the life of the bond issue. The resolution also authorizes, but does not commit, the Board and/or individual members of the Board to prepare and sponsor a ballot argument in support of the bond measure. No more than five (5) persons may sign the ballot argument.

This election will be called under constitutional and statutory provisions that require fifty-five percent (55%) voter approval, and certain accountability requirements, including annual independent financial and performance audits of how funds are spent, and the formation of a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee. Following adoption, the resolution (including the signed tax rate statement) must be delivered to the Registrar of Voters and the Board of Supervisors. State law requires that 2/3rd of a school board support the resolution calling an election requiring 55% voter approval. At least four (4) Board members must vote "Yes" in order to call the election.

Bond Measure Resolution

Dr. Shannon introduced Vice President Melanie Siddiqi who introduced bond counsel David Casnocha, and Frank Vega from RBC Capital Markets, who were present to answer any questions from the Board.

47 7/16/18 Regular Board Agenda

Ms. McLeod asked how long before Measure L is paid off. Mr. Vega responded fiscal year 2037 is the final payment.

As it relates to the pending bond resolution, Mr. Casnocha explained that the election order needs to be filed by the 88th day, which is August 10, 2018. AB195, the legislation which obligates school districts to include tax rate, duration of the tax and the amount of revenue expected to be collected each year by the levy of the tax, was not repealed. This now makes Exhibit A-1 irrelevant, so that portion of the board item is not needed. The first part of the Board agenda is the legal analysis of the bond, the second portion is the ballot question (Exhibit A), and the title emphasizes the mission of the college. Exhibit B is the full text of the Ballot Proposition and includes the scope of the bond project list. Mr. Casnocha stated that all of this, word for word, would be included in the voter pamphlet, if the Board approves the resolution.

Mr. Casnocha recommended the following language be changed in Exhibit A: $38 million average annually; and improve resources for Veterans' resources.

Mr. McDougal clarified that Exhibit B needs to be amended the same as Exhibit A. Mr. Casnocha confirmed the clarification.

Ms. Bailey asked if the Board had any questions regarding the cost to taxpayers for the bond measure. Ms. McLeod stated that she was concerned about the cost to taxpayers, even though she realizes that the bond is needed to make Chaffey a 21st century college. Mr. Vega explained that the average homeowner is paying $24 annually on property taxes for Measure L. With the new bond, the average would be $75 per year on property tax bills. It is not double taxing; rather, it is layering under the authority previously provided by taxpayers under Measure L. Comparable tax rates for neighboring community colleges are much higher.

There was discussion on how soon after a bond measure passes does the college receive the funds. Mr. Casnocha explained that the election is November 6, and then the county has 30 days to certify. The College must show evidence that it is able to spend 85% of the fund series within a 3-year period. The College could receive the funds late winter or early spring. Ms. McLeod asked if there are projects ready to go when the funds are received. It was explained that projects are being planned and will be ready.

Dr. Shannon mentioned that he has received comments that faculty strongly support the bond.

A motion was made by Mr. McDougal, seconded by Mr. Ovitt, to approve Resolution No. 7918 authorizing a bond election for November 6, 2018.
