Antioch Unified School District bond proposition, Measure C (June 2008)
Measure C authorized the school district to borrow $61.6 million.
A 55% supermajority vote was required for approval.
- These final, certified, election results are from the Contra Costa County elections office.
"Citizens for Democracy", a grassroots organization in Antioch, opposed Measure C, saying, "In these most difficult times, with constant skyrocketing price increases (such as for gasoline, medicines and food), home foreclosures, etc., the only logical choice is a No vote. The past and current AUSD Board majorities are the ones who allowed and created the problems they now want us to pay for."
