Opposition

The Sonoma County Taxpayers Association is opposed to Measure N. Dan Drummond, the executive director of the group, said, "I don't see any justification for using 40-year bonds for short-term items. The computers, they have a useful life of five years or maybe seven or eight years but the bond goes on for potentially 40 years which means our children and grandchildren will be left paying."[1]

Ballot question

The question on the ballot:

Measure N: "To make health and safety renovations; modernize outdated classrooms and restrooms; improve energy efficiency of facilities; upgrade playgrounds and playfields; increase student access to computers and modern technology; and construct, reconstruct, rehabilitate, replace, lease, furnish or equip school facilities districtwide, shall the Roseland Elementary School District issue $7,000,000 of bonds at legal interest rates, have an independent citizens' oversight committee and have no bond money taken by the state or used for teacher or administrator salaries?"[2]
