Construction Companies Spend $140,000 on Capistrano Unified Bond Measure
Within the last month, Capistrano Unified has seen a surge in contributions for the bond measure, Yes on M, amounting to $140,080.
The OC Register reports that the Yes on M campaign has now raised a total of $290,000 with construction companies, architects, and individuals showcaseing their support a month before the election.
Yes on M is also supported by Amy Hanacek, the CUSD Board President, and teachers.
Measure M needs 55 percent of votes to pass. If approved, the $889 million bond money will go to repair school buildings and classrooms, remove asbestos, and improve security at nearly 50 schools in the district.
Three Aliso Viejo city councilmembers and the Mayor, an assemblyman, state senator, and an Orange County supervisor oppose the measure, voicing concerns of a tax levy and oversight committees.
Rancho Mission Viejo constituents would be exempt from this measure as it excludes repairs to schools in that area.
