What finance person with half a brain would buy bonds from a special district that breaks election law & defies the Secretary of State in an attempt to stifle a repeal effort?(with a unanimous vote no less) SMART may have wanted to tie us up in the courts, but in reality, they just tied up their bond money until their court case with the State of California is resolved
