Del Mar Union School District bonds, Proposition CC (November 2012)
The measure would have authorized the school district to borrow $76.8 million. This would have cost property owners $8.44 per $100,000 of assessed valuation.
A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for approval.
- Final official results from the San Diego County elections office.
- Del Mar School District Superintendent Holly McClurg. McClurg said, "Some of our core values can’t be done without funding. We need access to 21st century tools and infrastructure."
- Catherine Birks, assistant superintendent for business services. Birks said, "last year we broke even and this year is the first year we will run a deficit....The reality is, yes we have reserves, but we don’t know what will happen with the state."
Path to the ballot
The bond proposition was voted onto the November 6, 2012, ballot by a 4-1 vote of the governing board of the district in early August 2012.
Board member Doug Perkins was the dissenting vote. He said he was concerned about the impact of more taxes on struggling families in the district.
