The Southwestern College district is asking voters on Nov. 8 to approve Proposition Z, a $400 million bond measure to finance repairs and construction at its four South County campuses.
District officials said bond money is needed to renovate classrooms and facilities in order to provide more instruction and job training to South County residents — veterans in particular — who come to Southwestern for an affordable education.
Robert Deegan, interim superintendent and president, said a key part of Proposition Z is supporting those who served in the military. It has been named the “Southwestern College Affordable Education, Job Training/Veteran Support Measure.”
