This measure was approved

  • YES 8,336 (56.63%)Approveda
  • NO 6,384 (43.37%)[1]

This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $17.5 million in order to construct and equip new facilities at the Dale Elementary school as well as making site improvements as needed. A levy of $.06 would have also been enacted to help pay for the bond.[2]

The issue had become entangled with the State race as Democrat Connie Pillich was said to have donated $100 to the campaign against this bond measure, when in fact she said her opponent was the one who did it in her name to push people against her who are in favor of this measure. She noted that it was a bad form of campaigning to use the school issue, which she had not taken a stand on, and try to persuade people to be against her. Her opponents those stated that they had no knowledge of the donation and Pillich was hopeful whoever did it would be caught.[3]
