Welcome to the Yes No on Measure E Campaign

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.

PROJECTS

The Board of Trustees of the Sierra Joint Community College District, to be responsive to the needs of its community, evaluated Sierra College's Rocklin Campus' older buildings and critical facility needs, and its capacity to provide students, military Veterans with support and job training facilities, and an affordable education to prepare them for success in college and careers. Veteran's support, job training and college transfer facilities, safety issues, class size and offerings, and information and computer technology were each considered in developing the scope of projects to be funded. In developing the scope of projects, basic repairs, workforce job training facilities, campus 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, Sierra College would be unable to remain competitive in preparing students for jobs in high demand industries and university transfer. The Board of Trustees determines that Sierra College MUST:

  1. (i) Bring old buildings up to code and current standards so that they can continue to be used for training our students;
  2. (ii) Increase opportunities for local students to earn college credits, certifications and job skills at reasonable prices and transfer to four-year colleges and universities;
  3. (iii) Continue to provide essential job training and workforce preparation for students of all ages in police, fire, nursing, paramedic, science and technology;
  4. (iv) ENSURE THAT ALL MONEY RAISED BY THIS MEASURE WILL STAY IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT LOCAL STUDENTS, AND CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY BY THE STATE OR USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES;
  5. (v) PROVIDE A COST-EFFECTIVE HIGHER EDUCATION FOR LOCAL STUDENTS;
  6. (vi) Adhere to stringent fiscal accountability safeguards including:
    1. (a) All expenditures will be subject to annual independent financial audits,
    2. (b) No funds will be used for administrators' salaries and pensions,
    3. B-2
      DOCSSF/128467v14/022000-0001

Type
Action
Recommended Action
It is recommended that the Board approve Resolution No. 2018-02 authorizing a bond election for June 5, 2018.


BACKGROUND

 

The resolution before the Board calls an election within the District for the purpose of approving general obligation bonds, requests that the Registrars of Voters for each of El Dorado, Placer and Sacramento Counties conduct the election on behalf of the District, and authorizes the preparation of election materials, including ballot arguments and tax rate statements, to be included in the ballot pamphlet.

 

State law requires the Board of Trustees to order community college district bond elections. Each 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 is 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. 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 Registrars of Voters and the Boards of Supervisors for each El Dorado, Placer and Sacramento Counties. State law requires that 2/3rd of a college board support the resolution calling an election requiring 55% voter approval. At least five (5) Board members must vote “Yes” in order to call the election.

WHEREAS, when Sierra College's main campus opened 56-years ago, it served only 1,500, whereas currently it serves 24,000 full and part-time students, compelling the Board to act to meet the demands of a growing student population; and

WHEREAS, the State is not providing the District with enough money for the District to adequately maintain Sierra College's Rocklin Campus educational facilities and academic programs; and

WHEREAS, the Board has received information regarding the feasibility of a local bond measure and the District's bonding capacity; and

WHEREAS, a local measure will provide funds that cannot be taken away by the State to support local college transfer and job training; and

WHEREAS, a local measure will make the District eligible to receive State matching funds; and

WHEREAS, such a local measure will include mandatory taxpayer protections, including an independent citizens' oversight of all funds and mandatory annual financial audits to ensure funds are spent only as authorized; and

WHEREAS, the Board and District has solicited stakeholder and community input on priorities from students, faculty, staff, business and civic leaders, and the community; and

improve facilities for course opportunities in technical vocational careers, by means of a general obligation bond issued in a financially prudent manner; and

WHEREAS, on November 7, 2000, the voters of California approved the Smaller Classes, Safer Schools and Financial Accountability Act ("Proposition 39") which reduced the voter threshold for ad valorem tax levies used to pay for debt service or bonded indebtedness to 55 percent of the votes cast on a community college district general obligation bond; and

WHEREAS, the Board desires to make certain findings herein to be applicable to this election order and to establish certain performance audits, standards of financial accountability and citizen oversight which are contained in Proposition 39 and the Act; and

WHEREAS, the Board determines that, in accordance with Opinion No. 04-110 of the Attorney General of the State of California, the restrictions in Proposition 39, which prohibit any bond money to be used for administrator salaries and other operating expenses of the District shall be strictly monitored by the District's Citizens' Oversight Committee; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Education Code Section 15270, based upon a projection of assessed property valuation, the Board has determined that, if approved by voters, the tax rate levied to meet the debt service requirements of the bonds proposed to be issued will not exceed the Proposition 39 limits per year per $100,000 of assessed valuation of taxable property; and

WHEREAS, Elections Code Section 9400 et seq. 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; and

WHEREAS, the Board now desires to authorize the filing of a tax rate statement and ballot argument in favor of the proposition to be submitted to the voters at the election; and
