When we in Coronado pay our annual property tax bills, there is virtually no relationship between the assessed values of our homes and how much money actually ends up funding our local school district. Under current law, only 8 cents of every Prop 13 tax dollar that we pay stays in Coronado. The remaining…Continue

Reason 1: Local Schools. I want to keep seeing the children who bike by my house each morning all heading to the same location...to an excellent and LOCAL education.

As an involved parent of three young children and a Coronado homeowner, I am hearing some concerned views about the cost of the school bond measure on the June ballot.

Bet you know someone like “Shorty”. Decent guy, owns a newer home, drives a Mercedes, has a smart phone, iPad, desktop, home theater, and enough credit cards to be comfortable. Shorty had a decent income, got a home equity loan to pay down credit cards and install that pool he wanted. When he had to take furlough days due to the economy, his income didn’t cover all expenses, and home and car repairs had to wait. But Shorty got tired of waiting for the economy to…
