    On March 5, 2002, voters in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District communities overwhelmingly passed the Measure C bond election. Measure C allows the district to issue $250 million in General Obligation bonds to pay for projects to improve school buildings and grounds.

     

    “Measure C was a great success.  Projects promised were projects completed.  The District brought in over $100 million in State funds to our community’s local schools.  Projects were completed on time and under budget.”

     

    John Ferrante, Present Chair

    2002 Measure C Oversight Committee
