San Diego residents here’s why I’m a NO on Measure YY.
- I’m all about San Diego Unified Schools so don’t read it the wrong way, I fully support our schools. We have 3 kids in the district, 2 in a SD Unified public charter and 1 in a neighborhood school.
- This is simply dollars and cents. There has to be another way to fund building and building maintenance of school buildings rather than raising property taxes. We received our tax bill this week which has rolled up all the bonds into categories for the first time. We currently pay more than $550/year for existing SD Unified bonds. For us, Measure YY would raise our property taxes by roughly $150/year for the next 40 years. I’d like to see us pay off some of these bonds from the 1990s before we add new bonds to our tax bills.
