Ripon voters OK school bond

local@modbee.comNovember 15, 2012 

— The latest update on school bonds shows Ripon Unified's bid to rebuild two campuses passing by a slim but safe margin.

Ripon school board member Kit Oase, who lobbied for San Joaquin County's Measure G, said there are just a few hundred damaged ballots still to be counted from the Ripon Unified district.

Unofficial final results released by the county elections office Wednesday give the measure 4,095 "yes" to 3,050 "no" votes, a 57 percent to 43 percent split.

School bonds need 55 percent to pass. Escalon Unified's bond, Measure B, passed easily, with an unofficial final tally of 3,157 "yes" to 1,787 "no" votes, or 64 percent to 36 percent.
