A nearly three hundred million dollar general bond that would help aging Vallejo school infrastructure would not be supported by the community if such a bond was placed on the November ballot, says a firm which surveyed hundreds of potential Vallejo voters in January.
The Vallejo school board is expected to receive these results during its meeting Wednesday night.
Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates firm (FM3), which conducted the 400 public opinion telephone interviews has concluded that such a single large bond amount of about $285 million “is not viable.”
The board hired FM3 to conduct a similar survey in June 2013 regarding a potential bond measure. About 62 percent surveyed in 2013 said they would support a school bond measure.
