To no one's surprise, the Claremont Unified School District Board this evening approved the bond resolution for a $95,000,000 bond to be voted on in November.
The vote was 4 in favor with Steven Llanusa opposing.
Those in attendance felt as if they had stumbled into a private party uninvited.
The "Most Witless Comment by a Board Member" Award goes to Trustee Jeff Stark, who opined that, really, questions about bond projects on priorities were out of order because the Board had to vote on the bond resolution first.
The "Most Opaque Answer in a Supporting Role" Award goes to Business Services Assistant Superintendent Lisa Shoemaker, who twice answered a question on how the bond would relieve the General Fund. In neither iteration did she give any specifics, leaving the questioners wondering "how much, exactly". She did, however, give her second answer at a slightly elevated volume, pitch, and level of impatience.
