Comments: Bait and switch. We voted on a bond under a premise clearly spelled out. If that premise is altered after our vote, doesn't that nullify the vote It took years to pass school bonds, and my guess is another one won't pass for a VERY long time if we can't trust the BOE. Sadly, it's been shown that we can't.
