WEST WHITTIER — Los Nietos School District board members have backed off their plans to to place a multimillion-dollar facilities bond measure on the June ballot. The move was partially due to wide-spread opposition from teachers and residents. Board President Oscar Payan, who supportted the bond with fellow trustees Diana Villalba and Grisel Vasquez, said the five-member panel needs more time to gather information and “look things over.” “I’m the (longest-serving) board member, and we’ve been talking about a bond since 2002,” Payan said Monday. “I just felt we could possibly do this this year and not wait any longer. But that needs to be a decision we make among all of us.” At this Wednesday’s meeting, the board is expected to rescind a 3-2 vote taken in February to authorize a subcommittee to interview bond consultants, a necessary step toward putting a bond measure on the June ballot. Because the board authorized that action, Payan said it now needs to be officially rescinded. A June bond measure is now out of the question, he added. Trustees Art Escobedo and Nicholas Aquino had voted against forming the subcommittee, saying there were other priorities the school board needed to address before launching into a bond campaign. Also in opposition was the Los Nietos Teachers Association, which picketed against the bond proposal in March. “Our thing was that board members weren’t really going about the (bond) process correctly. It’s almost like they were just trying to sneak it in the back door,” said William Chavez, co-president of the Los Nietos Teachers Association. “But if their intention now is to go through the process correctly and seek community input and get everybody’s buy-in, that would be the best way for them to see if it’s worthwhile to go through,” Chavez added. Payan said it’s unclear whether the board will push to get a bond on the November ballot. “There’s a lot of possibilities,” Payan said. “We’ll have to see what else we’re going to do.” For the complete story, pick up a copy of tomorrow’s Whittier Daily Newslast_img read more
