    I personally would not enter into a contract tied to --- "innovative funding" ---for fear of unforeseen consequences.
    However---I would not hesitate to enter into such a contract if I had no "skin in the game" such as is the case here.
    There are no consequences for elected officals who enter into questionable financial matters---this is a major problem and why hammers can cost $2000 a copy.

    That's "innovative" funding for you, the newest LUSD scam in a school district that can't even fix the mess they are in now. It's time for Washer to go.

    So as long as funding is from tax payers, money is no object... No discussion on how to reduce cost. 37 million? sounds very expensive to me.Especially if the land has already been [paid for. If one hammer costs 2000 dollars, that is ok as long as the "tax payer" pays for it.
