January 13, 2020: RRR Meeting (Residents for Responsible Representation) Topic: Riverside Community College District School Bond Measure A, scheduled for a public vote on March 3, 2020.

Remember School Repair Bond Measure O.  That passed, and now assesses approximately $50 per $100K assessed value of your home.  If your home is valued at $400K, you will have an additional $200 added to your annual property taxes.  With Measure O there was a clear and concise spending plan for badly needed school repairs.  Instead, the Trustees are directing the monies to build new schools.  The clincher is that the new schools are being built during a time when schools are experiencing a decrease in enrollment.

If Measure A passes it will do the same: increase your property tax.  If your home is valued at $250K it will be an additional $50;  If your home is valued at $400, you will have an additional $80 added to your property taxes.  We are looking at 2 cents per every $100 of the assessed value of your home.  In addition, with Measure A there is no clear cut spending plan.  On the other hand, Measure O monies are now being illegally diverted to build new schools. which is not what the campaign actually told the taxpayers om 2016.  Who’s in the middle of this?  RUSD School Board Trustee Patricia Lock Dawson, who is also running for Mayor of Riverside, and here are the rest, Trustee’s Kathy Allavie, Tom Hunt, Brent Lee (our representative in the Wood Streets) and Angelov Farooq.

CORRECTION: 02.27.2020: This video, which you can still see by hitting this link, was taken down because we were informed by RUSD School Board Trustee Tom Hunt that at the time this video was taken, the property of former Hawthorne School was sold to a developer.  Under this developer it was allowed to deteriorate and taken over by homeless.  As a result of vandalism and several fires, it was demolished, therefore we stand corrected.  Property was sold by RUSD due to issues regarding toxins, pollution, noise level and asbestos.  It deemed unsafe for children.  Thank you Mr. Hunt for the correction!

Here is the the City of Riverside Mayors Debate held on February 20, 2020 by Inland Congregations United For Change (ICUC).  Riverside Unified School District board member Patricia Lock Dawson, retired taxi driver Phi Long Tran “JD” Denilofs, retired union steward Rich Gardner, taxi driver Guy A. Harrell, City Councilman Andy Melendrez and personal assistant Acea Stapler attended and answered questioned regarding community issues.

    I just want to bring this to your attention. The state has Prop 13 which will do the same. And Jurupa Valley where I live has measure E. Here’s the thing on Measure E. 6 years ago the residents passed Measure EE which increased our property taxes over $100 a year to improve JVSD schools. I have only seen one school improved It is Riverside Elementary on Riverview road in Rubidoux. They built new classrooms on 42nd near where the old post office used to be. I haven’t seen any other physical improvements of the schools in my area. I do notice that the measures proponents have claimed in mailings that the monies would not be used for Administrative salaries. Well this is bullshit. When I went to Transparent CA site I noticed that Superintendent Elliot Duchon received over $60,000 in salary increases over the last 6 years. How many of you even make $60,000 on your job? I’ve inserted the link in here to prove my point. VOTE NO on PROP 13 MEASURE A and MEASURE E https://transparentcalifornia.com/salaries/search/?a=school-districts%2Friverside%2Fjurupa-unified&q=Elliott+N+Duchon&y=

    Javier, I am not looking to debate you on Measure O’s legality, you have the right to determine your own interpretation of the ballot language etc.some of which I share as being difficult to ascertain. And that has been distressing as transparcey is a foundational tenet of democracy.

    I only write to correct your columns claim that we have vacant schools with homeless and vagrants living in them etc. as the reality is RUSD uses all their campuses. The old Hawthorne school on Indiana was sold to a developer who took five years to finally demolish it so many folks and maybe your impression as well was it was still owned by the District and it was a homeless encampment–the latter being true. We badgered the developer to do something yet until he got his plan through the city and thereafter his bank loans to build he wouldn’t budge. We tried the old Fire Dept “practice burn” yet the school had too much asbestos tiles etc and the toxins from a fire would be harmful. In any case Javier if there is a campus or District building you suspect otherwise then please do reach out and I will look into it a d get back to you.

    Best regards, Tom Hunt

    • Thank you Mr. Hunt for chiming in, I appreciate the correction, I removed the video with an explanation regarding the video, that the property was never in control of RUSD when the video was taken. When the video was taken, it was under the ownership and control of the developer. I didn’t know this and appreciate the information you brought forward to bring clarity to what appeared to be an unclear visual perspective of this former property.
      Best, Javier Moreno

    I’m trying to understand the math in this article. The numbers and claims are inconsistent and don’t add up.

    FACT: Measure A, if passed, will add 2 cents per every $100 of the assessed value of your home.

    “CITY OF RIVERSIDE: MEASURE A : ANOTHER EDUCATION BOND? ANOTHER $50 PER $80K IN PROPERTY TAXES ON THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME!” (FALSE)

    “If your home is valued at $400K, you will have an additional $200 attached to your yearly property taxes. If Measure A passes it will do the same.” (FALSE)

    “If your home is valued at $400K, you will have an additional $80 added to your property taxes. We are looking at 2 cents per every $100 of the assessed value of your home.” (TRUE)

    • Sorry for the confusion Sam, as I understand, When Measure O passed it added approximately $50 per $100K of the assessed value of your home. It the assessed value was $400K, it would be $200.

      Measure A would add 2 cents for every $100 of the assessed value of your home. If it was valued at $400K, it would $80; if it was valued at $250K it would be $50

      Best, Javier

    Look at what the stated need for more of your money is. The old college district buildings have fallen into disrepair and are dangerous to staff and students. A reasonable person reading this in the Measure A description must conclude that the District management failed to maintain the campus buildings. They diverted maintenance funds to other uses and let the buildings fall apart until now they are dangerous. The need for more funds is due to a failure of management to do their job. This may also be mal-feasance and negligence if the buildings are truly in dangerous shape and staff and students are exposed to these dangers. I find it outrageous that they come to the voters for more of our money because they failed to protect our kids and district employees. Vote out the Community College District elected officials and demand executive staff resign. VOTE NO ON MEASURE A.
