It isn't the city that is wanting the money....it is Clear Creek ISD.

That website is a joke. It provides no detailed information on how the monies will be spent. Whoever put it up fails to mention all the updates needed for existing buildings due to aging as well as increased enrollment. The naysayers have no idea what they are talking about (C-Scope is NOT used in CCISD) and have probably never set foot in a PTA or school board meeting. Get your facts straight and provide proof before spewing misinformation. I am voting YES and if you do your research, you will too.

Take some time to see where the money will be spent then decide for yourself.

No, I want my kids to go to school in a building that has air conditioning that works properly, is safe, secure, and provides the curriculum, instruction, and materials that prepares them to be successful adults who don't have to rely on others to support them.

How else do you propose to pay for this all Been There? I'm up for hearing other ideas.

Do you think it's okay for kids to attend school in deteriorating buildings with health, safety, and security issues?

An advisory committee was put together using interested, involved citizens from the community. Anyone who complains now had an opportunity to voice their opinion then, but chose not to do so does not have my sympathy.

The fact is that CCISD could have created several bonds to place on the ballot giving the voters a chance to approve those items needed for necessary items vs "the whole shebang" attitude.

We're not stupid. We recognize the old attack method of "if you vote against the bond you don't care about the children."

Grow up folks, our community cannot afford this bond in its entirety.
IF CCISD really cared about the children, they would have given voters a choice, they chose not to.
Voted NO today

oh btw...PBK helped that "advisory committee" along with Ann Hammond's campaign manager, Lisa Holbrook.
Construction company PBK normally makes 5 to 6 % of the total bond amount...wonder how much Ann and Lisa will make if the bond passes...after all..don't they all sit in on the same boards? Clear Creek Education Foundation and Gulf Coast School Board.

Like I said, we're not stupid

Clear Lake Area Republicans Oppose Bond

Members of the Clear Lake Area Republicans gathered Monday (April 29) at the Harris County Courthouse Annex to pass a resolution opposing the 2013 Clear Creek Independent School District bond referendum.
The resolution cites the members’ belief that the bond will provide “funding for wasteful projects above and beyond what is needed for repairs and infrastructure.” Although the resolution cites the need for bonds when “the need for capital improvement is necessary,” it is the belief of the Organization that the additional $367 million increase in debt, which will put CCISD’s debt per resident at $4750 (185% of the state average), is not in the best interest of parents, students, and taxpayers.
“We oppose the aggregation of expenditures proposed to be funded by this Bond,” said Clear Lake Area Republican President Daniel McCool.“The voters should have the opportunity to separate those
expenditures which are necessary from those that are either unwarranted or unnecessary.” McCool further stated “the voters should have been able to vote on each expense need instead of a combined sum, take it or leave it type vote.”
“Do the citizens realize that will be one billion dollars of new debt floated through CCISD Bonds in a little more than a decade? That debt will be shouldered by those children who are supposed to be help by the bonds” McCool said.
The vote on the resolution comes at the start of early voting for the bond. Early voting will continue until May 7. Election day is May 11.
