Proponents of Measure S in Eureka optimistic it will be passed
EUREKA- A nearly $50 million bond measure for facility upgrades in Eureka City Schools is currently on pace to be approved. The “Yes on S” Campaign Chair, Gregg Gardiner, says he is optimistic more than 55 percent of voters will have supported the measure when results are official.
"Roughly, we have another 2,500 to 3,000 votes out there yet to count. We're hoping those percentages stay the same and at the end of the day we carry the day," said Gardiner.
The plan is to fund modernization projects which focus on improving ADA accessibility and students’ safety, as well as enhancing career and technical education. Proponents say getting the measure passed is important for Eureka’s youth.
“To give our kids a good, safe learning environment, we need to pass bond measures and bond measures make our schools do all those things. And I think certainly, more than 50 percent believe that. We just hope at the end of the day when all the votes are counted that 55 percent say yes so we can begin the hard work of making those improvements and modernizations and making our schools safe," Gardiner said.
