Measure Wording: To modernize, construct and/or renovate classrooms, restrooms and school facilities at elementary schools; improve student access to modern technology; upgrade inadequate electrical systems; replace deteriorating plumbing systems; construct career/technical education classrooms, including science labs; and replace leaky roofs, shall the Martinez Unified School District issue $120,000,000 of bonds, at legal interest rates, with annual audits, an independent citizens’ oversight committee, NO money for teacher or administrator salaries and all funds locally-controlled?
Bond yes 67.72%
Bond no 32.28%
Martinez Unified School District Superintendent CJ Cammack said in his December superintendent’s message, “The money from this general obligation bond will be the key to providing our staff and students with the type of learning facilities they deserve. In the coming months and years, I am looking forward to working through our facilities master plan with our community of stakeholders and our board of education to design the best possible responses to the various facility challenges we face. Along with passage of Measure D by the City of Martinez, our community will be seeing many tangible improvements over the next few years.”
