Voters must soon decide if they’re willing to pay a small amount of money for decades to come to enhance and expand college opportunities right here at home.
The Solano Community College District, through Measure Q, seeks $348 million for a host of somewhat speculative programs and facilities projects. The total sought is the limit allowed by law for the college, based on the value of all property within the district’s bounds.
Jowell Laguerre, superintendent and president of the college, made the rounds pitching elements of the district’s draft facilities master plan. He said Measure Q money would help to make those facilities in Fairfield, Vacaville and Vallejo a reality. He’s also pitched a number of programs that Measure Q money would support.
