The Infrastructure PAC of the Associated General Contractors has been giving heavily to back some controversial school bond measures around San Diego County appearing on November’s ballot — with one glaring exception. On September 15, the group came up with $25,000 to oppose Proposition X, which would authorize new debt for the Grossmont Community College District. The San Diego County Taxpayers Association, the downtown business lobbying group usually allied with the contractors, warns that the plan is a black hole.
“If the District was unable to provide detailed information about the financials and management of its bond program for analysis despite numerous attempts to retrieve this information, it is also likely not to be transparent with the public about these details.” The contractors’ PAC gave $15,000 to Grossmont High School District’s Measure BB, backed by Taxpayers, and paid $10,000 to A Strong Mira Costa Sponsored by Mira Costa College Foundation, which is promoting Proposition MM, also supported by Taxpayers.
