The Voters Have Spoken: Greenlight for Measure GO
Letter from the President
On November 6, 2018, we got a strong message from our local voters. They believe in the power of education. They believe in our students. And they believe in Mt. San Antonio College’s role in helping students succeed. Voters passed Measure GO by 60.82%, casting 78,943 votes in favor of the educational bond. We only needed 55% to pass the measure. Public support for Mt. SAC’s work and future plans is thanks to our students, employees and volunteers who have worked tireless to support our college. I thank each of you for your role in making Mt. SAC the dynamic place of learning it is today and for countless years to come.
As Mounties, we know that Mt. SAC serves a critical role in our community. We provide high quality, affordable college education and job training to local students. Our value is unsurpassable. More students and families need Mt. SAC because the College offers an affordable alternative to the growing cost of four-year university systems. We also take pride in helping high school students get a jumpstart on earning college credit by taking college courses. And we know college security must be updated to keep students safe. The passage of Measure GO means our local voters understand the vital role we play in training, educating and enriching our community. It allows us to tackle these important needs, further Mt. SAC’s academic mission, and help students succeed.
Measure GO is a $750 million education bond, which would cost approximately 2.5 cents per $100 of assessed – not market – property value. We’ll be forming a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to ensure every single bond expenditure is spent appropriately.
