Keeping Our Eye on the Ball
In my inaugural Message from the Chair, I thanked Don Ulrich for his leadership as the outgoing CASH Chair and formally introduced myself to you. I spoke of having ‘high hopes’ for faster implementation of State bond funds for California schools, but ‘hope’ is not a strategy. My primary focus as Chair of the CASH Board: Full implementation of Proposition 51 to fund previously approved School Facility Program (SFP) projects and support for a 2020 bond as a bridge to a sustainable capital funding system to address current and future needs. In this Message, I will provide updates to our membership on these foundational issues for the organization.
