Opposition

"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."

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Measure C: "To address critical renovation and modernization needs at schools that have served Antioch for more than forty years, replace aging roofs, aging plumbing, old heating and air conditioning units with energy efficient systems, upgrade restrooms, electrical systems, renovate and expand libraries, shall the School Facilities Improvement District No. 1 of the Antioch Unified School District issue $61,600,000 in bonds at legal interest rates with funds monitored by an Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee and no funds spent on administrators?"[1]
