Nika Megino, I would like to recommend the patch write an update on Measure G activity. I don't understand how NUSD can get 63 million and not inform the public about what is being done regarding this money. If the patch cannot gather relevant information, how can the public be informed? * Who at NUSD is responsible for informing the public on measure G planning? How will they fulfill this responsibility? * Is there a legal responsibility for NUSD to keep the public informed on bond expenditures? If so what should the public expect? * has the independent oversight group been elected? have they met? Any meeting reports? * if so who are they ? * Is there a link online for people to know how to apply to be on the committee? * what is the status of the bonds themselves? Has any money been spent? * is there a webpage that gets updated with this information. * What is the history and status of the previous bond? what was that money been spent on? Is there documentation available? I am not interested in anecdotal explanations.

All excellent questions. I have also wondered about how the school bond monies are spent. There should be a regular reporting of the expeditures so voters can see where there tax dollars are being spent.

Exactly Bill. It has been almost 8 months and I've heard nothing from posts or emails. If it's my fault, then I would like to see the sources and get myself up to date. If not, the public is being let down. I'm not sure what to do at this point, I wish we had a small group to help keep the District honest and responsible.

I have received some information on the Measure G activities. Many questions can be answered here: http://www.nusd.ca.schoolloop.com/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1329741517347 Thanks Nika

The current members of the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee are: William Baker, Jack Dane, Andrea Francis, Mondae Hefter, Casper Knoop, Tammie Mackey, Liz Mafi-Tuitama, Theresa Miller, Marilyn Painter, Jerome Behrens and Lozano Smith. Sadly there is no information that I could see about the money or any projects. There are no minutes from the last meeting. I suggest NUSD make a direct link to the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee page from the home page. It is very difficult to find. Also I hope people insist that all the info from the previous bond, which is still being paid back, is posted. If it is, please somebody share it here.

I agree with Albert. There shouild be a regular reporting of monies spent or to be spent on all NUSD bonds. This includes monies already spent on projects on which we are still paying A website that is regularly updated would be most welcome and should be a mandatory requirement on any Newark school or city bond measure.
