Welcome to the Yes No on Measure A Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your Stanislaus 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 Salida Union Elementary 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, Stanislaus, 0633900, 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.

Measure A Question

Exhibit A-1

EXHIBIT A

SUMMARY OF BALLOT MEASURE

[Option 1: If AB195 remains in place]

Without increasing current tax rates, shall Salida Union School District improve campus security and student safety by constructing secure school entrances, exits and fencing; renovate classrooms and schools; repair leaky plumbing; and replace and upgrade electrical wiring to meet current fire safety codes by issuing $2.5 million in bonds with legal rates, an average tax levy of $0.005 per $100 of assessed valuation while the bonds are outstanding (averaging $200,000/year), annual audits and independent taxpayer oversight?

Bonds—YES ____ Bonds – NO _____

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.

[Option 2: If AB195 is suspended/not applicable]

Without increasing current tax rates, shall Salida Union School District improve campus security and student safety by constructing secure school entrances, exits and fencing; renovate classrooms and schools; repair leaky plumbing; and replace and upgrade electrical wiring to meet current fire safety codes by issuing $2.5 million in bonds with legal rates, annual audits and independent taxpayer oversight so long as all funds are spent locally and not taken by the state and used elsewhere?

Impartial Analysis for Measure A

IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS BY COUNTY COUNSEL
BOND MEASURE A
Salida Union School District

Upon approval of 55% of the votes cast by voters on this Measure A, California law authorizes Salida Union School District ("District") to issue bonds in an aggregate amount not exceeding $2,500,000 to finance specific school facilities projects. The bonds would constitute an indebtedness of the District. The bonds interest rates and maturity dates will not exceed the legal maximums.

California Education Code section 15100 restricts the use of the money raised from the bonds sale to such items as building and maintaining school buildings, improving school grounds, supplying school buildings and grounds with equipment, and the acquisition of real property for school facilities. In addition, the District may only use the proceeds for projects listed in the measure. The project list includes, among others: improve building security and communication systems; construct, renovate, repair, equip and upgrade classrooms, school grounds and facilities; repair/replace leaky roofs; and modernize/upgrade electrical wiring and technology.

Proceeds may not be used for any other purpose, such as teacher or administrator salaries, or school operating expenses. Based on the final costs of each project, allocation of bond proceeds may be affected, and certain listed projects may be delayed or may not be completed.

Approval of this measure will authorize a levy of ad valorem taxes on property located within District boundaries to pay bond principal, interest and associated costs.

The Tax Rate Statement for Measure A in this sample ballot pamphlet reflects the District's best estimates, based on currently available data and projections, of the property tax rates required to service the bonds. The actual amount of tax levied may be higher. The best estimate of the average annual tax rate required to be levied to fund the bonds over the entire duration of the bond debt service is $0.005 per $100 (or $5 per $100,000) of assessed valuation. The best estimate of the highest tax rate to be levied to fund the bonds is $0.006 per $100 (or $6 per $100,000) of assessed valuation. If all bonds are issued and sold, the best estimate of the total debt service, including principal and interest, is approximately $4,823,858.

The measure requires District be accountable for the use of the proceeds from the sale of the bonds as required by the California Constitution and Education Code. An independent citizens' oversight committee will ensure the bond proceeds are expended only on the projects outlined in the measure. Performance and financial audits will be conducted annually.

The measure is placed on the ballot by the Board of Education of the District.

A "yes" vote is a vote to authorize District to issue up to and sell $2,500,000 in bonds for the purposes listed in the "Project List" and levy related taxes.

A "no" vote is a vote against authorizing Salida Union School District to issue the bonds.

Submitted by County Counsel pursuant to Elections Code section 9500.

ACCOUNTABILITY MEASURES

The provisions in this section are included in this proposition in order that the voters and taxpayers of the District may be assured that their money will be spent to address specific facilities needs of the District, all in compliance with the requirements of Article XIII A, section 1(b)(3) of the State Constitution, and the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000 (codified at Section 15264 et seq. of the California Education Code).

Evaluation of Needs. The Board of Education has evaluated the facilities needs of the District, and has identified projects to finance from a local bond measure at this time. The Board of Education hereby certifies that it has evaluated safety, class size reduction and information technology needs in developing the Bond Project List.

Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee. The Board of Education shall establish an independent Citizens' Oversight Committee in accordance with Education Code sections 15278-15282 and applicable Board policy, to ensure bond proceeds are expended only for the school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List.

Annual Financial Audit. The Board of Education shall conduct or cause to be conducted an annual, independent financial audit of the bond proceeds until all of those proceeds have been spent for the school facilities projects described in the Bond Project List.

Annual Report to Board. Upon approval of this measure and the sale of any bonds approved, the Board of Education shall take actions necessary to establish an account in which proceeds of the sale of bonds will be deposited. As long as any proceeds of the bonds remain unexpended, the Superintendent shall cause a report to be filed with the Board of Education no later than January 1 of each year, commencing on the first January 1 after bonds have been issued and proceeds spent, stating (1) the amount of bond proceeds received and expended in the past fiscal year, and (2) the status of any project funded or to be funded from bond proceeds.

Single Purpose. All of the purposes enumerated in this proposition shall be united and voted upon as one single proposition, pursuant to Section 15100 of the California Education Code, and all the enumerated purposes shall constitute the specific single purpose of the bonds and proceeds of the bonds shall be spent only for such purpose.

Measure A Tax Rate Statement

Exhibit C-1

EXHIBIT C
TAX RATE STATEMENT

An election will be held within the boundaries of Salida Union School District ("District") on November 6, 2018, to authorize the sale of up to $2,500,000 in bonds to finance facilities as described in the proposition. If the bonds are approved, the District expects to sell the bonds in one or more series. Principal and interest on the bonds will be payable from the proceeds of tax levies made upon the taxable property located within the District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections 9400-9404 of the California Elections Code.

  1. 1. The best estimate of the average annual tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue over the entire duration of the bond debt service, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.005 per $100 of assessed valuation. The final fiscal year in which the tax is anticipated to be collected is 2043-44.
  2. 2. The best estimate of the highest tax rate which 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 $0.006 per $100 of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2020-21.
  3. 3. The best estimate of total debt service, including principal and interest, which would be required to be repaid if all the bonds are issued and sold is $4,823,858.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rate is based on the assessed value of taxable property on the County of Stanislaus 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.

WHEREAS, the District must repair, construct, acquire or equip classrooms, and facilities to make them safe and help ensure that all students have equal access to 21st century classrooms, labs and school facilities;

WHEREAS, because the State is not funding school facilities improvements and passing this bond measure provides a guaranteed source of local funding to maintain and improve this community's local school facilities;

WHEREAS, every penny from this bond measure will benefit local schools and no funds can be taken away by the State or other school districts, and by law, no money can be used for administrator salaries or pensions;

WHEREAS, the Board is specifically authorized to order elections for the purpose of submitting to the electors the question of whether bonds of the District shall be issued and sold for the purpose of raising money for the purposes hereinafter specified, pursuant to Section 15100 et seq. of the Education Code;

WHEREAS, pursuant to section 18 of Article XVI and section 1 of Article XIII A of the California Constitution (also known as "Proposition 39"), and Section 15266 of the Education Code, school districts may seek approval of general obligation bonds and levy an ad valorem tax to repay those bonds upon a fifty-five percent (55%) vote of those voting on a proposition for that purpose, provided certain accountability measures are included in the proposition;

WHEREAS, the Board deems it necessary and advisable to submit such a bond proposition to the electors to be approved by fifty-five percent (55%) of the votes cast;

WHEREAS, such a bond election must be conducted concurrent with a statewide primary election, general election or special election, or at a regularly scheduled local election, as required by Section 15266 of the Education Code, and on November 6, 2018, a general election is scheduled to occur throughout the District;

WHEREAS, the District intends to undertake a "tax rate extension" such that the tax rate levied to meet the debt service requirements on bonds issued pursuant to the bond measure, when taken together with the tax rate levied to pay bonds issued under the 1987 bond election, would not exceed approximately Thirty Dollars ($30.00) per year per one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) of taxable property when assessed valuation is projected by the District to increase in accordance with Article XIIIA of the California Constitution; the current estimated and projected tax rate is described in the Tax Rate Statement contained in Exhibit C hereto;

WHEREAS, Section 9400 et seq. of the California Elections Code requires that a tax rate statement be contained in all official materials, including any ballot pamphlet prepared, sponsored or distributed by the District, relating to the election;
