Vote NO on both Bond and Parcel Tax. Gloria has spent a good amount of our hard earned money and as a result, she keeps closing positions like Librarians, Custodians, CDC, Paraprofessionals, etc. Enough is Enough.

Do NOT believe this:

If approved, both the parcel tax and bond would be overseen by independent citizens' oversight committees and subject to annual independent performance and financial audits. The district is required to produce annual reports on how the funds are being spent.
Gloria always gets away with wasting our money and then hides the truth from us voters.

Thank Ms. Mark Hinkle for submitting the opposition to this Bond and Parcel Tax. Why Shall we continue to give our money to the district when they spend it in the laundry machines, which does no helps our student's academic skills to improve. The superintendent is in the wrong business, she needs to find a job related to what she likes to do to look herself good., but does not benefit ALL student's in our district, especially because the laundry rooms are not open to the public due to lack of a permit. Hope other voters read this article and they opposed to this crazy way for our superintendent to take our money away when she does not even listen to us parents. We are tired of her and the board members, hopefully, new and fresh people run this November so the district can improve. By the way, I heard that Ms. Willson might be recalled. Hope is true.
