Welcome to the Yes No on Measure L Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your Sonoma 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.)

Do you want to give this district a Thanksgiving surprise? Please call or text me (with #HonestBalllots, Sonoma, 0628320, 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 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 L

COUNTY COUNSEL'S IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS OF MEASURE L
Cal i for nia law per mits school dis tricts to is sue bonds to pay for con struc tion, re pair,
replacement, and acquisition of school facilities provided 55 percent of voters who
vote on the mea sure ap prove the sale of the bonds. The Old Adobe Un ion School
Dis trict Board of Trust ees has placed on the bal lot the ques tion of whether to is sue
$38,500,000 in bonds for such pur poses.
Money raised by bond sales may only be used for the pur poses and pro jects stated
in the Bond Pro ject List set forth in Mea sure L, fol low ing this anal y sis. Pro ceeds could
be used to mod ern ize, ren o vate, con struct, ac quire, equip, ex pand, or oth er wise im -
prove ed u ca tional and sup port fa cil i ties. The Bond Pro ject List in cludes a com plete list
of pro jects and allowed expenditures. As re quired by law, Mea sure L pro hib its us ing
bond proceeds for teacher or administrator salaries or other operating expenses.
The Board of Trust ees has cer ti fied that it eval u ated safety, class size, and in for -
ma tion tech nol ogy needs in de vel op ing the Bond Pro ject List. In clu sion of a pro ject
on the Bond Pro ject List does not guar an tee it will be funded or com pleted. The
Dis trict may seek State funds to aug ment Bond pro ceeds to ad vance the Bond
Pro ject List. The Board of Trust ees will es tab lish the pri or ity and or der in which
projects are undertaken.
If adopted, Mea sure L in cludes “Ac count abil ity Safe guards” that re quire the Board of
Trust ees to: annually conduct independent financial and performance audits;
establish an Independent Cit i zens’ Over sight Com mit tee; and main tain bond
proceeds in a sep a rate ac count in the County Trea sury. Mea sure L fur ther re quires
Dis trict Su per in ten dent to pro vide an an nual re port to the Board on the sta tus of pro jects
un der taken and the amount of bond pro ceeds re ceived and expended in each year.
If ap proved, Mea sure L au tho rizes Old Adobe Un ion School Dis trict to is sue and
sell gen eral ob li ga tion bonds in se ries, at dif fer ent times, as pro jects are un der -
taken. Bonds of any se ries must ma ture within the stat u tory max i mum num ber of
years from date of is sue. The in ter est rate on the bonds will de pend on the mar ket
rate at the time bonds are sold, but can not ex ceed the max i mum rate set by law.
Bonds will be re paid from prop erty taxes lev ied on real prop erty within the Dis trict
based on the value of land and im prove ments on each prop erty. Those taxes
would be in ad di tion to cur rent prop erty taxes on real prop erty within the Dis trict.
The amount of tax needed each year will de pend upon the amount needed to re pay
out stand ing prin ci pal and in ter est. The Dis trict’s Tax Rate State ment, which fol -
lows this anal y sis, es ti mates the high est tax rate nec es sary to fund the bonds is
$30 per $100,000 of as sessed value. Those tax lev ies are pro jec tions, and could
go up or down, de pend ing on a num ber of fac tors in clud ing the tim ing and amount
of bond sales, and changes in as sessed prop erty val ues in the Dis trict.
If all bonds are sold, the to tal debt ser vice (in clud ing prin ci pal and in ter est) will be
$79,000,000. The tax will raise ap prox i mately $2,200,000 an nu ally.
A “yes” vote on Mea sure L will au tho rize the Dis trict to is sue the bonds and levy
taxes to pay for the in debt ed ness. A “no” vote on Mea sure L will not au tho rize either
the is su ance of bonds or the as so ci ated levy of taxes.

Argument in Favor of Measure L

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE L

Every child de serves to learn in quality school facilities. Your Yes Vote on Measure L will prepare generations of our local students for future success.

Old Adobe Union School District has served our community well for over 60 years. However, our schools have grown old and are overdue for repairs. Much was done with the funds from our successful 2012 school improvement measure, including replacing deteriorating plumbing systems and making health and safety improvements, but more work is needed. All of our school facilities need to be brought up to current safety and efficiency standards. Measure L authorizes funds for needed facility repairs and upgrades to improve student safety, instruction, and learning. No other funding currently exists to upgrade these facilities.

If passed, Measure L will provide funding to make critical facility improvements to our local elementary schools including: repairing or replacing leaky roofs; improving student access to computers and modern technology; replacing outdated heating, ventilation and cooling systems to increase energy-efficiency; making health, safety and handicapped accessibility improvements; and modernizing outdated classrooms, restrooms and school facilities.

Old Adobe Union School District is proud to have award-winning schools. Measure L protects academic facilities so our excellent instruction and performance standards can be maintained.

All funds stay local. The State can not take this funding away. Tax payer protections are required. No funds can be spent on administrators' salaries or pensions. Independent Citizens' Over sight and mandatory audits ensure funds are spent properly.

Whether or not you have school-age children, protecting our local, high quality education is a wise investment for your property values and a strong community.

Vote Yes on Measure L.

Measure L Tax Rate Statement

TAX RATE STATEMENT — MEASURE L
An elec tion will be held in the Old Adobe Un ion School Dis trict (the “Dis trict”) on
No vem ber 6, 2018, to au tho rize the sale of up to $38.5 mil lion in bonds of the District
to fi nance school fa cil i ties as de scribed in the mea sure. If such bonds are authorized
and sold, prin ci pal and in ter est on the bonds will be pay able only from the pro ceeds
of ad valorem tax lev ies made upon the tax able prop erty in the Dis trict. The following
in for ma tion is pro vided in com pli ance with Sec tions 9400-9404 of the Elec tions
Code of the State of Cal i for nia. Such in for ma tion is based upon the best es ti mates
and projections presently available from official sources, upon experience within
the Dis trict, and other de mon stra ble fac tors.
Based upon the fore go ing and pro jec tions of the Dis trict’s as sessed val u a tion, the
following information is provided:
1. The best es ti mate of the av er age an nual tax rate which would be re quired
to be lev ied to fund this bond is sue over the en tire du ra tion of the bond
debt ser vice, based on a pro jec tion of as sessed val u a tions avail able at
the time of fil ing of this state ment, is $0.03 per $100 of as sessed val u a tion
(or $30 per $100,000 of as sessed value). The fi nal fis cal year in which it is
an tic i pated that the tax will be col lected is 2052-53.
2. The best es ti mate of the high est tax rate which would be re quired to be
lev ied to fund this bond is sue, based on a pro jec tion of as sessed valuations
avail able at the time of fil ing of this state ment, is $0.03 per $100 of as -
sessed val u a tion (or $30 per $100,000 of as sessed value). It is es ti mated
that such rate would be lev ied start ing in fis cal year 2019-20 and following.
3. The best es ti mate of the to tal debt ser vice, in clud ing the prin ci pal and
interest, that would be re quired to be re paid if all the bonds are is sued and
sold is approximately $79,000,000.
Voters should note the es ti mated tax rate is based on the assessed value (not market
value) of tax able prop erty on the County’s of fi cial tax rolls. In ad di tion, tax pay ers
el i gi ble for a prop erty tax ex emp tion, such as the home owner’s ex emp tion, will be
taxed at a lower ef fec tive tax rate than de scribed above. Prop erty own ers should
con sult their own prop erty tax bills and tax ad vi sors to de ter mine their prop erty’s
as sessed value and any ap pli ca ble tax ex emp tions.
The at ten tion of all vot ers is di rected to the fact that the fore go ing in for ma tion is
based upon pro jec tions and es ti mates only, which amounts are not max i mum
amounts and du ra tions and are not bind ing upon the Dis trict. The ac tual debt service,
tax rates and the years in which they will ap ply may vary from those used to pro vide
the es ti mates set forth above, due to fac tors such as vari a tions in the tim ing of bond
sales, the par amount of bonds sold and mar ket in ter est rates avail able at the time
of each sale, ac tual as sessed val u a tions over the term of the bonds, and other factors.
The date and amount of bonds sold at any given time will be de ter mined by the
Dis trict based on the need for pro ject funds and other con sid er ations. The ac tual
in ter est rates at which the bonds will be sold will de pend on con di tions in the bond
mar ket at the time of sale. Ac tual fu ture as sessed val u a tions will de pend upon the
amount and value of tax able prop erty within the Dis trict as de ter mined by the
County As ses sor in the an nual as sess ment and the equal iza tion pro cess.
