Below is the direct link to FUSD’s Facilities Plan as posted to FUSD’s website:
 
See pages 92, 93, 94 for the School Board Approved Allocation, by school and by category of how $407,727,000 of Measure E monies will be spent.  The remainder of the $650,000,000 (60% of the allocated spending) is set aside for "inflation and overruns." 
 
Take Note That:
 
27 elementaries and all 5 high schools are allocated zero Measure E dollars to Category 4. “Plumbing & Restrooms.”
 
All 28 elementaries and all 5 high schools are allocated zero Measure E dollars for Category 2. “Science & Classroom Technology”.
 
27 elementaries and all 5 high schools are allocated zero Measure E dollars for Category 9. “New & Replacement Classrooms.”
 
520 homes will be built at Patterson Ranch in Spring 2015, 2700 homes are currently planned in Warm Springs, 800 along Guardino Way, more at the Sisters of the Holy Family site, and on smaller lots throughout Fremont.  Thousands more are in the City planning pipeline.

Why are all of the developer influenced politicians lying to us?  Because they want to steal our money under the guise of school repairs which our property taxes are already covering.  A parcel tax is just another word for additional property tax; not in compliance with the law-Proposition 13!  

Proposition 13 outlaws further property tax.   So you guys just change the name of the tax and lie to us.  This is AGAINST THE LAW!  And no protection for folks on fixed income, which is the reason Proposition 13 was passed in the first place.  You guys are ILLEGALLY circumventing the law for your personal gain.  It is obvious.

STOP LYING TO US! 

When I met with one of the framers of Measure E a few days ago, I asked to
see the dollar figures by High School Attendance areas.  I didn't even get
to that level of what the projects would be.  I just wanted to see if the
dollar allocations were "sort of equal (say within 3%).  That figure
available for the voters of 2002 bond.  I was very surprised to be told
that they deliberately decided to not show those amounts by High School
attendance areas to the community.  Making budgeting mistakes is one thing,
sandbagging amounts could still be tolerated.  But for consultants to
advise the Board and the District to not be honest with the people is
absolutely not acceptable.

I asked some of those folks how they felt about telling high schoolers to
campaign for a bond that has some " items that have been deliberately left
vague"  Sorry if this offends some folks.  I have decided to not actively
oppose or support Measure E.  I just want to place the facts out there so
that voters can make an informed decision.  This is when I really miss
Linda Widmar and Guy Emanuele on the school board who along with their advocacy of being honest
with the voters, community involvement and consensus.


This is my first attempt at responding to a discussion, and I know it's a little dated as the measure passed several months ago. I wonder if anyone out there in this discussion knows if the bonds that passed are called "Capital Appreciation Bonds?" If that's the case the property owners in Fremont are in big trouble. Take time to research what they are and how they can affect our long term debt. Some reports say that on an assessed value of $200,000 our costs would be about (and it's all about)only $7600 over 30 years, that can't be right. I will stop here and see if we can get some responses. Thanks, Sarah M.
