Measure J, the $249 million Fairfield-Suisun School District bond measure, was with a bit more than half the precincts counted early Wednesday just above the 55 percent needed for passage.
A total of 55.3 percent of voters backed the bond, while 44.7 percent were opposed as of deadline.
Measure J opponents in an argument against the bond had said, “This is not a school construction measure. It’s a maintenance measure. It’s here because the district has not taken proper care of its facilities for years.”
