BRIGHTON – Brighton School District 27J thinks it may float a bond issue to voters, perhaps as early as next year.
That’s just fine with the two candidates who want to represent District 4 on the board of education.
“I think our 27J families, like the rest of the country, have been hit hard by the struggling economy,” said challenger Shelley MartindelCampo. “However, I believe our 27J families will stand behind and support a proposal for a new bond to build another high school. They understand the importance and can see the benefit for their children.”
A new high school and a new career tech center would be part of a bond package, according to the school district. They were included in the 2008 failed bond election. The high school would have been built near East 96th Avenue and Buckley Road. The tech center would have been built near East 144th Avenue and Buckley Road.
“Yes, I do support a bond,” said incumbent Joan Kniss. “The growth in the district continues with over 700 new students this year. There are signs now that the economy is turning around. I see homes selling in my area, new businesses coming into the area and recognition that Adams County is one of the places in the nation that is beating the recession. I feel our economy will be solid enough to
support a bond election.”
The election is Nov. 3. Mail-in ballots are due to be sent out Oct. 12 to Oct. 19 and have to be returned by 7 p.m., Nov. 3, to the Adams County Clerk and Recorder’s Office.
