A Half Billion Dollar Poway School Bond and Santee’s efforts to make Granny Flats easier and less expensive to build are the topics in episode #71 of the John Riley Project.

What?  Another huge school bond in Poway?  We discuss the recent survey to Poway Unified parents testing their interest in a new school bond.  We also get into innovative strategies of financing schools to save taxpayer dollars and help save money to use for capital improvement projects without going to the voters for more bonds.  Then we discuss Santee’s efforts to encourage homeowners to build more granny flats in order to provide more housing opportunities and partly address the current housing crisis.

We also touched on so many topics and people including John Collins, Marian Kim Phelps, Billion Dollar Bond, Madam Secretary, Tea Leoni, San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, Albert Einstein, outsourcing, middle college, Khan Academy, Capital Appreciation Bonds, capital expenses, Poway, Santee, integrity, Prop 13, Kevin Faulconer, San Diego, teacher unions.
