Welcome to the Yes No on Measure Y Campaign

Are you sure you want vote to support this extravagant measure? It has no accountability.

This campaign was designed by Isom Advisors. 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 BY THE SUTTER COUNTY COUNSEL RELATING TO
MEASURE Y WHICH SEEKS APPROVAL TO ISSUE AND SELL BONDS BY THE
BRITTAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT

This measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of Trustees (Board) of the Brittan Elementary School District (District). A "yes" vote is a vote to authorize bonds. A "no" vote is a vote against issuing the proposed bonds.

If affirmed by 55% of the electorate in the District, Measure Y will authorize the issuance of new general obligation bonds in the maximum principal amount of $4 million ($4,000,000). Bond proceeds will be used to fund projects included on the Bond Project List as set forth in the measure. Bond proceeds will be used to build a gymnasium for school and community use; construct and renovate classrooms, restrooms and support facilities; upgrade outdated heating, ventilation, and electrical systems; construct classrooms to support physical education curriculum; upgrade classrooms and educational facilities to meet current health and safety codes; and make health, safety and handicap accessibility improvements.

Bond proceeds will be used for furniture, equipment, architectural, engineering and similar planning costs, program/project management, and customary contingency for unforeseen design and construct costs. Bond proceeds will also be used for the acquisition of a variety of instructional, maintenance and operational equipment, including the and interim funding incurred to advance fund projects from the list; upgrade of technology infrastructure; payment of the costs of preparation of all facility planning, facility studies, assessment reviews, preparation and updates, environmental studies, design and construction documentation and temporary housing of the dislocated District activities caused by construction projects.

The Board has certified that it has evaluated safety, class size reduction, and information technology needs of the District in developing the Bond Project List.

Approval of the bond measure does not guarantee that any particular project will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by the bond measure. The District's proposal for the projects may assume the receipt of matching state 2 funds, which could be subject to appropriation by the Legislature or approval of a statewide bond measure. Bond proceeds may also be used for other incidental costs associated with the listed projects, including . Proceeds of the bonds cannot be used for administrators' or teachers' salaries or any other school operating expenses.

The Board will conduct independent annual performance and financial audits, and appoint an independent citizens' oversight committee to ensure bond proceeds are expended as promised and specified.

Measure Y will not otherwise affect existing law. This analysis is submitted by the Sutter County Counsel as required under Elections Code section 9500.

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE Y
BRITTAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Our schools are the most important assets in our community and should be our number one priority. Quality schools improve student achievement, increase property values, prepare children for productive futures, and create greater neighborhood safety. Our teachers and staff do a great job educating local children, but Brittan Elementary School District's facilities are inadequate to provide them with the physical education opportunities that our students deserve.

Although our schools have been well maintained over the years, we have a lack of facilities that do not meet 21st century standards for physical education. As a cornerstone to our community, we need Brittan Elementary School District to continue to be a major resource for our children. If we invest in our schools, we can construct a gymnasium for school and community use that will meet health, safety and handicapped accessibility requirements as well as improve educational standards and further enrich the community of Sutter.

If passed, Measure Y will provide funding to make critical facility improvements to Brittan Elementary School including:

  • Build a new gymnasium for school and community use
  • Construct classrooms to support physical education curriculum
  • Making health, safety and handicapped accessibility improvements
  • Construct/renovate classrooms, restrooms and support facilities

Measure Y makes financial sense and protects taxpayers.

  • Spending will be reviewed and annually audited by an independent citizens' oversight committee.
  • All bond funds must be spent locally and cannot be taken by the State.
  • Funds are required to be spent only on schools, not for administrator or teacher salaries.

Measure Y will construct facilities to enhance physical education, increase the educational opportunities for our students, and improve the quality of our community. That's something we can all support. Please join us and VOTE YES ON MEASURE Y!

2340 Pepper Street Sutter, California 95982
(530) 822-5155, Ext 303 FAX 822-5143

Tax Rate Statement

An election will be held in the Brittan Elementary School District (the "District") on June 5, 201 8 to authorize the sale of $4,000,000 in general obligation bonds. If such bonds are authorized and sold, principal and interest on the bonds will be payable only from the proceeds of tax levies made on the taxable property in the District. These estimates are based on projections derived from information obtained from official sources and other demonstrable factors. The actual tax rates and the years in which they will apply may vary depending on the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold at each sale, and actual increases in assessed valuations. The following information is submitted in compliance with Sections 9400-9404 of the California Elections Code.

  1. i. The best estimate of the average annual tax rate that would be required to fund this bond issue over the entire duration of bond debt service, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is $0.0300 per $100 ($30.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation.
  2. ii. The best estimate of the final fiscal year in which the tax described in (i) above is anticipated to be collected is fiscal year 2050-51.
  3. iii. The best estimate of the highest tax rate that would be required to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing this statement, is $0.0300 per $ 100 ($30.00 per $ 100,000) of assessed valuation, which is projected to be the same in every fiscal year the bonds remain outstanding.
  4. iv. 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 will be approximately $8.9 million.

Based upon the forgoing and projections of the District's assessed valuation, the timing of the bond sales and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the needs of the District and other factors. Actual assessed valuations will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the Sutter County Assessor in the assessment and the equalization process.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rates are based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property in the District as shown on the 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.
