Santa Ana Unified School District bond proposition, Measure G (June 2008)
Measure G authorized the school district to borrow $200 million.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
Santa Ana voters approved Measure C in 1999. Measure C was a $145-million bond issue based on the promise of building 13 new schools. However, after C passed with 70.3% of the vote, district officials spent $450 million building five schools.
- These final, certified, results are from the Orange County elections office.
Supporters of Measure G raised more than $200,000, mostly from contractors who do business with the district.
The question on the ballot:
|Measure G: "Authorize the school district to issue and sell bonds of up to $200,000,000 in principal at interest rates below the legal limit, to provide financing for the school facilities projects stated in the Measure."|
