Measure I – AUSD Tax Bond Measure
Measure I is Irresponsible! We urge you to vote ‘no’ – no more student debt!

The school district still owes more than $170 million on the Measure C bonds from 2004, which, despite the objections of upstanding citizens who questioned the wisdom of issuing $63 million in bonds that translate into $176 million in repayments that run to the year 2036, because repayment was deferred for 10 years. You see this debt expense on your tax bill, under ‘Voter Approved Debt – School Unified.’

AUSD has *17 school campuses* for less than 10,000 students. Rather than asking taxpayers to take on more debt, AUSD needs to consolidate its facilities.

For the 2014 Alameda General Election, Save Our City! Alameda endorses the following positions and candidates.

Mayor of Alameda
We urge you to vote for Trish Spencer for Mayor. Trish has been a voice of reason the school board, and fought against land swaps that gave away valuable school district land in favor of developers and at the expense of Alameda children and taxpayers.

Alameda City Council
Bullet vote! Strengthen your chance for change! You can vote for two, but vote for just one (bullet voting):

Frank Matarrese – The other two candidates are sure to perpetuate the developer-centric status quo in City Hall. Bullet vote for Frank to increase the chances of changing course.

Alameda Unified School District Board of Trustees
Bullet vote! Strengthen your chance for change! You can vote for two, but vote for just one (bullet voting):

Gary Lym – It’s time for Mike McMahon to go (see below.) Bullet vote for Gary to increase the chances of changing course on the school board.

It’s time for Mike McMahon to go…he’s done too much damage to Alameda schools and children in his multiple terms… For example, Mike McMahon approved the Measure C bonds, which have ballooned from $63 million in debt to $176 million.

Alameda Health Care District
None yet.
