“The Citrus Heights Chamber has been a great supporter of public education and our San Juan schools,” said Board of Education President Rick Launey. “We are thrilled that they are taking a leadership role in ensuring the quality of our schools for the next decade by supporting Measure N.”
Adding to the support for Measure N, the Sacramento Central Labor Council and the Teamsters Local 150 urged passage for San Juan’s bond campaign.
“We are excited to receive the support of the working men and women of Sacramento County,” said Measure N Committee Chair Larry Miles. “We share an interest in providing career technical education in areas including the building trades and in creating jobs in the Sacramento region.”
- Teamsters Local 150, the union representing San Juan’s bus drivers, has endorsed Measure N.
Miles expressed particular appreciation for the endorsement of Teamsters Local 150.
“The Teamsters represent our San Juan bus drivers, and we see everyday their commitment to our school District and the safety of our children,” Miles said. “We thank our bus drivers for their support of Measure N and their dedication to the district.”
Measure N is a local school bond initiative for the San Juan Unified District to support technology in schools, provide students with modern classrooms and replace deteriorating portables with permanent learning spaces. The $350 million measure will allow San Juan schools to be eligible for millions in state and federal matching funds making the community’s investment go even further in providing children with the education they deserve.
A Citizens Oversight Committee composed entirely of community residents will ensure Measure N proceeds are invested wisely. Measure N prohibits the use of funds for administrators’ salaries, pensions, or operating expenses to guarantee that all money will go directly to benefit every child and school.
