Ballot Measures:

Measure AA — Clean and Healthy Bay:   Vote Yes (See previous issue for reasons for support.)

Measure B — MARIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT BOND MEASURE: Vote Yes

Measure B includes: repairs and upgrades to facilities that are necessary to meet current building codes for earthquakes, fires, and safety; updates to classrooms, labs, and vocational education facilities to support the science, engineering, and technology courses students need to be prepared for four‐year college and careers; and facilities needed for support and job training for returning veterans. At the Indian Valley Campus, Measure B will allow COM to continue attracting students by providing the updated facilities necessary to offer specialized technical and career training programs — including for firefighters, paramedics and health care professionals — as well as transfer courses.  Measure B is critical to increasing enrollment and allowing the college to reach its full potential.

Moreover, this measure includes important fiscal accountability protections to ensure taxpayers dollars stay right here in our community, can’t be taken by the state and can’t be spent on administration.  NBLC agrees with the College of Marin board that students deserve quality, affordable higher education that prepares them for four‐year degrees and future careers.
