Welcome to the Yes No on Measure O Campaign

#HonestBallots Movement

Your Yolo 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 Woodland Joint Unified 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, Yolo, 0643080, 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 KNN Public Finance. 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.

Vote Yes on Measure O! Building for the Future!
Public schools are essential to our community. Most of us know a child who attends or an adult who works in Woodland Public Schools. We are committed to doing everything pos-sible to support quality education for current and future students within a healthy and safe learning environment. Measure O is a prudent, responsible plan to address two vital fa-cility improvement projects at our high schools.

Vital Facility Upgrades to Support Student Learning
• Woodland High School (WHS) Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system ($15.5M)
• Pioneer High School (PHS) 2nd gymnasium ($4.1M)

Measure O Makes Sense Now!
• There is no other source for project funding.
• The longer we wait, the higher the cost!

Why We Need This Bond!
• WHS HVAC:

• Was installed during school site construction in 1969.

• Failing electrical parts are becoming increasingly expensive.
• Is essential for ventilation because most classrooms lack windows.

• PHS Gymnasium:

• Was originally planned for the 2002 school site construction.
• Is necessary for safe and effective Physical Education (PE) instruction--will elimi-nate over-crowding.
• Allows PE class participation for all students regardless of weather conditions.
• Provides sufficient practice facilities for student athletes and school activities.

Measure O Guarantees:
• Fiscally conservative financing.

• Five-year repayment cost of $52/year for every $100,000 of assessed property value.

• District transparency and spending accountability.

• By law, bond funds CANNOT be used for school district salaries.
• By law, 100% of bond funds must support ONLY the HVAC and gym projects.
• Annual audits are REQUIRED and must be made public.
• No change orders are allowed, so construction costs are set during the bid process.

• Citizen oversight committee will oversee finances from the initial bid process through project completion.

Please join us and Vote Yes on Measure O! Building for the future together!

Rebuttal to Argument in Favor of Measure O

Rebuttal to the Argument in Favor of Measure O

Measure O - Proponents' Claims Unsupported.

FACT: HVAC and Gym are NOT "top priority." Projects chosen by trustees during board meeting to:

1. Make an offer the public "cannot refuse"
2. Provide an accomplishment to support board's re-election campaigns in 2020

FACT: PHS 2nd Gym was unfunded project from 1999's bond. In 2018, locals opposed new bond without gym. Board included it. Requested principal write justification letter. Now claimed a "safety issue."

FACT: District claims asking for "what we need." Bond amount is $509,360 above project estimates. No explanation of where that extra money will be spent.

Measure O - Not Fiscally Responsible.

FACT: Board downplayed project estimates preferring to "negotiate price when we get the money."

FACT: 54% of the HVAC estimate ($8,469,641) represents "unknown" (potential) costs and identified duplications.

"Unknowns" increase to 80% ($12,469,641 of total project estimated $15,565,640) by adding unexplained $4,000,000 "Power Upgrade," at nearly double the cost of all HVAC equipment and piping combined.

FACT: 49% of PHS ("bare-bones") 2nd Gym estimate is for "unknown" (potential) costs.

FACT: Larger estimated "unknowns" increase risk leading to larger contractor bids, eliminating potential savings.

Measure O - Offers No "Guarantees." Proponents Offer "Deception."

FACT: School board chooses Citizen Oversight Committee members and defines rules. No guarantees exist, anywhere, ensuring committee involvement during planning or bidding.

FACT: "No change orders allowed" is unsupported by WJUSD Resolution and State Law.

FACT: Other funding? WJUSD Annual State funding increased $25,000,000+. District could pay cash!

VOTE FOR FACTS, NOT HYPE!!

Argument Against Measure O

Measure O asks voters to approve a $20 million bond to fund a new secondary gym at Pioneer High ($4,500,000) and replace heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems at Woodland High ($15,500,000).

 We are a group of local business, and other concerned citizens who support our community, schools, students and taxpayers. We do not question the need for the two project, however we do have concerns with the costs.

FACT: The new heating/air conditioning system at Woodland High is projected to cost $15,500,000, including "soft costs" of $3.5 million, "contingencies" estimated at @2.3 million, a "power upgrade" of $4 million and general contractor "mark-ups" of $1.4 million. Voters need to research meanings of the terms in quotation marks.

FACT: Local contractors estimates of HVAC costs are one half the proposed amount.

FACT: We still owe approximately $30 million on the last school bond.

FACT: Woodland Joint Unified has an annual operating budget of $108,000,000. Could some of these funds be used to cover part of the cost of these projects?

Our group has attended many school board meetings and met with school board staff and we gained the following assurances:

(a) Staff promised that if the projects are completed under budget, the remaining bonds will not be sold. With this promise and a strong oversight committee in place to monitor soft costs and contingencies, we believe we have a strong safety net for these projects.

(b) The school board now realizes that smaller bonds paid back over a shorter period will save the community millions!

We believe the school board has heard what the community has suggested and now it is the voters' responsibility to educate themselves, evaluate the cost/benefit ratio of these two projects and vote accordingly.

Rebuttal to Argument Against Measure O

Rebuttal to the Argument Against Measure O

Measure O is the result of our school district responding to our community, through the crafting of a small revenue bond that funds solutions for two of our highest need projects, while acknowledging voter concerns about project costs and accountability.


Why Bond Funds and Not Annual Budget Funds?
• 79% of the budget goes to salaries and benefits, leaving $22.7 million to maintain 17 separate school sites AND pay for operating expenses and supplies.
• When school funding was cut over the past few decades, cuts were made "as far from the kids as possible." In Woodland this meant maintenance was deferred to avoid cutting music or athletics. The annual budget cannot cover regular operating costs AND also accomplish multi-million dollar deferred maintenance tasks.


Why Does the HVAC at Woodland Cost So Much?
• $15.5 million is based on an architect's estimate so the district can ensure they have funds IF NEEDED. Actual costs will be determined when official bids are solicited from approved vendors. Bonds will be sold to cover ONLY these costs.
• The system MAY cost a lot less than estimated. Fewer bonds sold means lower cost for taxpayers.
• WHS' HVAC is already 15+ years past life expectancy—we can't wait another 10 years to repay the Pioneer bond before addressing this issue!


We all agree that schools are a vital part of our community. Measure O was crafted to protect taxpayers from paying more money than is absolutely necessary, while still benefitting our students. Please see www.yeswoodland.com for more information.

EXHIBIT A

WOODLAND JOINT UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

BOND PROJECT LIST

Projects to be funded by the bond measure include:

  • ? Installation of a comprehensive HVAC system at Woodland High School
  • ? Construction of a new practice gymnasium at Pioneer High School

The listed projects will be completed as needed. Each project is assumed to include its share of furniture, equipment, architectural, engineering, and similar planning costs, program management, staff training expenses and a customary contingency, and escalation for unforeseen design and construction costs. In addition to the listed projects stated above, the Project List also includes the acquisition of a variety of maintenance and operational equipment, including the payment of the costs of preparation of all facility planning, facility studies, assessment reviews, environmental studies (including environmental investigation, remediation and monitoring), design and construction documentation, and temporary housing of dislocated District activities caused by bond projects.

The budget for each project is an estimation and may be affected by factors beyond the District's control. The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded and projects are completed. Based on the final costs of each project, certain of the projects described above may be delayed or may not be completed. Demolition of existing facilities and reconstruction of facilities scheduled for repair and upgrade may occur, if the Board determines that such an approach would be more cost-effective in creating enhanced and operationally efficient campuses. Necessary site preparation/restoration and landscaping, may occur in connection with new construction, renovation or remodeling, or installation or removal of relocatable classrooms, including ingress and egress, removing, replacing, or installing irrigation, utility lines, trees and landscaping, redirecting fire access, and acquiring any necessary easements, licenses, or rights of way to the property.

Measure O Tax Rate Statement

Exhibit B

EXHIBIT B

TAX RATE STATEMENT

An election will be held in the Woodland Joint Unified School District (the "District") on November 6, 2018, to authorize the sale of up to $20,200,000 in bonds of the District for the specific school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List established by the District, as described in the proposition. If the bonds are authorized and a State bonding capacity waiver is received, the District expects to sell the bonds in two or more series. 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 9400-9404 of the Elections Code of the State of California.

  1. 1. The best estimate from official sources of the average annual tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund that bond issue over the entire duration of the bond debt service, based on assessed valuations available at the time of the election or a projection based on experience within the same jurisdiction or other demonstrable factors is 5.28 cents per $100 of assessed valuation ($52.80 per $100,000 of assessed valuation) of all property to be taxed. The best estimate of the final fiscal year in which the tax is anticipated to be collected is 2023-24.
  2. 2. The best estimate from official sources of the highest tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund that bond issue, and an estimate of the year in which that rate will apply, based on assessed valuations available at the time of the election or a projection based on experience within the same jurisdiction or other demonstrable factors is 5.282 cents per $100 of assessed valuation ($52.82 per $100,000 of assessed valuation) of all property to be taxed. The best estimate of the year in which the highest tax rate will apply is anticipated to be 2019-20.
  3. 3. The best estimate from official sources of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all the bonds are issued and sold is $22,239,492.

Voters should note that such estimated tax rates are specific to the repayment of bonds issued under this authorization and are and will be in addition to tax rates levied in connection with other bond authorizations approved or to be approved by the District or any other overlapping public agency.

Voters should note that estimated tax rate is based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on Yolo County's 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 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 Yolo County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.
