The path to the election Tuesday, June 7, continues for Bond Measure LB, which, if passed, would lead to $850 million to improve buildings, resources and partnerships for LBCC.
According to the LBCC information about Measure LB pamphlet, the bond will be used to improve educational resources for veterans, repaired electrical, sewer and building issues, expand employers to fill local job training, meet earthquake standards and upgrade science, engineering and technology classrooms and labs.
On Tuesday, April 19, Associated Student Body Adviser and Interim Student Success Grant Coordinator Camille Bolton said the student Cabinet endorsed the bond measure March 25.
On Wednesday, April 20, Student Trustee Andrew Lomeli said the Citizen’s Oversight Committee is almost ready to publish the specific building list, though he was not given any specific dates.
The committee makes the final decisions as to where the money is spent and makes sure the funds are spent equitably.
