5 min read

4 of the five community members of the Oak Park and River Forest Large College District 200 Local community Finance Committee (CFC) apparently favor sending the funding of the school’s somewhere around $102 million Job 2 to a referendum. The 12 person CFC, which also consists of five OPRF employees and two college board customers such as president Tom Cofsky and member Kebreab Henry, fulfilled on Feb. 28 to talk about funding selections for Challenge 2 and other issues. 

Cal Davis, Petra Guerrero, new CFC member Kathleen Odell and CFC chairman Steve Miller all favored funding Challenge 2 largely with referendum bonds, which are only issued immediately after voters approve the borrowing in a referendum, fairly than with credit card debt certificates, a sort of borrowing that doesn’t call for a referendum. 

“We are the neighborhood finance committee so we do require to pay attention to the local community I feel,” claimed CFC member Guerrero claimed. “And it is the appropriate factor to do I would surely favor referendum bonds.”
