LOSD Local Option On the Ballot

To ALL COLA LO members,

The LOSD local option levy will be on the November ballot.    LOSD has decided to propose the option early in case the measure fails so they will have another opportunity next spring.    While there is strong support for the option in the community its any one's guess how the vote will turn out.   

Details on the options official filing can be found here:  Official Notice of District Measure.

The school boards plans were published in the Oregonian earlier this summer LOSD Plans.

Given the fall off year election cycle its likely that voter participation may only be in the range of 28-32%   That may bode well for the success of the measure.     The previous levy election was in a cycle with a major presidential race in November 2008.     Participation was much higher and the
levy was approved by a 14% margin 

See below for the Clackamas county results. 

          Vote for  1
           Yes  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .    13,109   56.86
           No.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .     9,944   43.14

It will be interesting to see the details of this ballot measure in an off year election cycle.
