The editorial board of the North County Times endorsed Measure EE, writing, "This money will provide critically needed new spaces, plus upgrading and modernizing of existing buildings that can then continue to serve the community for generations to come. Further, MiraCosta's leadership has pledged not to engage in the expensive capital appreciation bonds that raise borrowing costs to astronomical levels."
