CFW Participates in 22% of All California School Bond Measures Approved on Tuesday

Election Results Demonstrate CFW’s Winning Approach in Tough Economic Times

EMERYVILLE, CA – On November 2, 2010, forty-three school bonds were approved in counties up and down the state, with CFW providing its proven campaign leadership to over 20% of the winning Districts.  From the Mexican to the Oregon border, Los Angeles to San Bernardino, wine counties of Sonoma and Napa to Contra Costa and Alameda, CFW’s election victories included:

Calistoga Joint Unified School District 62.9%
El Rancho Unified School District 74.2%
Emery Unified School District 73.2%
Imperial Valley Community College District 64.0%
Martinez Unified School District 64.9%
Rialto Unified School District 68.7%
Sonoma Valley Unified School District 66.7%
St. Helena Unified School District 60.6%
Twin Hills Union School District 63.1%
Wiseburn School District 75.0%

Our campaigns focused on improving academic achievement, reducing annual operating costs, and increasing the functionality of existing school facilities.  Our clients’ bond programs ranged from tax increase measures to tax rate extensions.  In total, approximately $600 million in bond authorizations were approved.  In at least two cases, school districts were approving their fourth bond election in 12 years.  Perhaps the most challenging was the approval of an $87 million charter high school bond measure for the residents of the Wiseburn Elementary School District.

Following yesterday’s success, CFW now looks forward to the next step of raising the necessary funds to implement the construction of the proposed improvements.  Many of these clients fully utilized the full range of CFW integrated services including facilities planning, campaign and election services, State aid procurement, program administration, and financial advisory services.

To date, the firm has participated in the modernization and construction of an estimated 1,000 schools statewide over its twenty-four year history.  Should your District or neighbors have a facilities and financing need, CFW is available to assist in achieving successful results.  For more information about our services, please contact Ernesto Flores or Abel Guillen at (510) 596-8180
