Ramonans share opinions on Proposition R

Bond will mean $300 a year for assessed valuation of $500,000

Just received Ramona school district’s flyer for Proposition R. They make it sound so rosy by saying that it will only cost property owners $5 a month per $100,000 assessed valuation.

It (the flyer) needs to be more to fact and state that if your property has an assessed valuation of $500,000 your taxes are going up $300 a year.

Count me as a No.

Supports bond, but not board or management

I do not know a lot about financing schools or the people on our school board. However, if we let our schools deteriorate to the point where roofs leak, our classrooms need repair and we borrowed $25 million and did not make provisions to repay the loan, the district should have new management.

It is my understanding that our school system is also on the verge of bankruptcy and on a county watch list.

A good well-managed school is basic. A change in management is the first step to solving our problems.

I support the bond issue but I do not support the current board members or management that got us into the current fiscal mess.

Joseph Ocampo, Ramona

  1. enough is enough!

    To Joseph Ocampo,

    Make no mistake, a vote for prop R is an endorsment of the present district administration and board. Although advertised as not to be used for salaries, it will be used to offset other expenses from the general fund and will allow the staus quo to continue.
