ANN WORTHINGTON, San Clemente
I’m sure everyone is concerned about a potential increase in property taxes because of ballot Measure H. But there is a difference between being critical, skeptical or cynical, and being totally uninformed.
For facts about the Measure H bond, please visit the Capistrano Unified School District’s website, attend an informational meeting, or talk with your local CUSD Board of Trustee member, and get the real data from a credible source.
Property owners are being asked to spend $34 for every $100,000 in assessed home value. Many San Clemente residents have low assessed values because they’ve owned their homes for many years.
If your property’s assessed value is $500,000, you will pay an extra $170 per year on our schools. If your assessed value is $1,000,000, you will pay $340 per year. That’s less than a dollar a day to invest in San Clemente’s future.
Our aging schools are the heart of our community. Our teachers, students, and staff deserve better. San Clemente deserves better. Measure H is the best chance we have to make our schools great again.
