The Fountain Valley School District’s Board of Trustees will consider a resolution Thursday night that would start the process for a potential bond issue by conducting a survey of local voters to gauge support, according to the Fountain Valley Patch.
I wrote about this before – and the same warning holds true now. The Fountain Valley School District’s Board of Education is dominated by retired and current teachers and administrators. They are likely going after this property tax increase so as to pay off pensions, not invest in any new technology. The district has been shutting down schools for years as registration figures continue to plummet. Why ask the voters to increase their property taxes while shuttering schools?
If you live in this school district, you better start contacting your board members now and tell them not to put this fraudulent bond measure on the November ballot. Here are the Fountain Valley School Board members:
