SDCTA Opposes Proposition X (Nov 2016) - "Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College"
The District has not submitted any information to the SDCTA requesting its endorsement. All information in this brief was obtained from the District's web site and contains limited detail. It is unclear whether the District has or will adopt SDCTA recommended best practices, or if the District has met the key provisions of the SDCTA Bond Support Criteria. The SDCTA believes that if the District was unable to provide detailed information about the financials and management of its bond program for analysis despite numerous attempts to retrieve this information, it is also likely not to be transparent with the public about these details. In 2012, voters passed a $398 million General Obligation bond measure for facilities improvements in Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District. The SDCTA supported this measure, but revoked its support in 2015 based on the fact that the District violated its pledge to promote fair and open competition for taxpayer-funded projects. The District again intends to negotiate a project labor agreement with various trade unions for the completion of its Measure X projects.
