“Vendors are main Milpitas school bond backers”
From the San Jose Mercury-News:
Vendors who will gain contracts from Milpitas Unified School District’s Measure E general obligation bond should it pass have donated tens of thousands of dollars for the campaign efforts leading up to Tuesday’s decision.
Funds raised by the independent committee Community United for Excellent Milpitas Schools totaled nearly $105,000, according to the group’s campaign statement filed with the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters May 21.
The bond will raise property taxes by $50 per $100,000 of a home’s value.
