Let’s see if I can do this without screwing up. A pollster finds that 67 percent of Ohlone College district voters would support a $349 bond measure in November to to make infrastructure improvements to the Fremont campus.
The bond needs just 55 percent to pass.
A similar poll last year found that 58 percent of voters would support the bond. The college has spent money on two mailers since then highlighting their facility issues.
The surveys show that job training is seen as very important for voters this year, which might be one reason the college has named the facilities bond, “The Ohlone College Job Training & Quality Education Local Funding Measure.”
The board will discuss the bond at its meeting Wednesday. Read the report here.
