I recently contacted First District Supervisor Janet Nguyen to find out where she stands in regards to Measure G.Ã‚Â Measure G is a bond measure that will appear on the ballots of those residing within the Santa Ana Unified School District boundries and if approved by 67% of the voters would lead to a $200 million bond for school improvements.Ã‚Â Many of Janet’s most loyal propagandists in the blogosphere have barbequed anyone who has dared support this measure, but as usual they have given their girl Janet a free pass.
Since the area in question falls directly within the First District I decided to find out exactly where our Supervisor stands.Ã‚Â I felt it was important that the voters hear directly from Janet on this all important issue.Ã‚Â The response I received was pure political double speak.Ã‚Â You see Janet Nguyen supports Measure G…..If you do.Ã‚Â I am sure she tells those that oppose it that she does too.
Here is Janet’s response:

Subject: Re: Measure GDear Mr. Mill:Thank you for your email regarding my position on the Santa Ana Unified School DistrictÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s proposed bond, Measure G.Ã‚ÂAs you know, I fully support finding ways to solve overcrowding issues in schools.Ã‚Â It is important for students and educators that classrooms be manageable and productive learning environments.Ã‚ÂIf there are funds available at the state level, the Santa Ana Unified School District has a right and a responsibility to seek out those funds to help better the schools in their district.Ã‚ÂHowever, the decision is ultimately left in the hands of the voters and as elected officials it is our responsibility to abide by the wishes of the public.Ã‚Â Should two-thirds of the voters decide to approve Measure G, I am confident and hopeÃ‚Â that the School District will use the resources in a responsible and effective manner.Ã‚Â
Again, thank you for contacting me about Measure G and as always, feel free to contact me.Sincerely,Supervisor Janet Nguyen
First District, Board of Supervisors
