Vote no on Smart School bond proposal

June 29, 2014
Leader Herald

On the November ballot, voters will be asked to approve a $2 billion bond proposal that will be used to construct prekindergarten buildings, for broadband and wireless services in schools for laptops, desktops and tablets, and for security and surveillance equipment. The bonds will be paid off over a 30-year period, depending on whether the money is spent on construction, for broadband, computers or security. Even though laptops and tablets have a short lifespan before they are outdated, the bonds allocated for their purchase may take eight years to be amortized.
