This November, San Juan County voters will have an opportunity to vote on General Obligation Bond D (referred to as GO Bond D). Voting “yes” will not increase property taxes. Passage of the bond would result in more than $128 million to be used for renovations, upgrades and improvements at New Mexico colleges and universities.
Approval of the Bond will mean an allocation of $5,520,000 for San Juan County. At San Juan College, passage of this bond would fund roof replacements and fire tower demolition, where campus housing will be located. The tower is being relocated to the Hutton Street Campus.
For many of New Mexico’s colleges and universities, GO Bond D will serve as an essential source of funding to re-invest and modernize current facilities, improve safety and technology, and boost degree or certificate programs that give students the knowledge and skills they need to pursue high-paying, in-demand careers.
Absentee voting begins on October 9. Early voting begins on October 20, and Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, with polls open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
