Culver City Chamber Backs Tax Hike For Schools
May 1, 2014
The Board of Directors of the Culver City Chamber of Commerce has voted to support Measure CC on the June Ballot.
The bond measure would hike property taxes for businesses and residents and raise $106 million to fund major renovations and technology upgrades at each of Culver City Unified School District's school sites.
Chamber President Steven J. Rose released the following statement "As the leading advocate for business in Culver City, the Chamber recognizes that an educated workforce is one of the leading economic development tools local government can create. Our 21st century economy is being built on technology that drives a vibrant economy."
Rose said the Chamber is eager to support Measure CC because it means that CCUSD facilities will be upgraded to a level befitting the quality of education being delivered on campus. The school district's ability to create a high-quality educational environment for its students will only help students succeed in the classroom and beyond, he said.
"Our students, our future customers and employees will need a strong foundation in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)," Rose said. "Investing in buildings with 21st century technology will help ensure that the standards of our new economy will be met."For more information about Measure CC, you can visit the chamber's website at: http://www.culvercitykids.org.
