In your editorial on the Atascadero School Bond Reauthorization, Measure B-14, you applauded voters for passing the bond in 2010 “to improve facilities desperately in need of major rehabbing.” That desperate need of major rehab still exists four years later. Half of the projects are done or in process, half of the “desperate need” remains. The other half of the projects would be continuing on schedule had the downturn in property values not happened. How many of us would have liked to have seen into the future on that one?
The reauthorization of the 2010 bond in Measure B-14 should be evaluated on its own merits and not be weighed against other ballot measures. But you placed passage of the Cuesta College bond over the Atascadero K-12 school measure in your editorial. I strongly disagree with your evaluation.
I choose the “desperate need” in our Atascadero K-12 schools over the adults who choose to attend Cuesta.
Vote for Measure B-14, “improve facilities desperately in need” and save money in the long run.
