Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – Anna Bryson, candidate for the 73rd Assembly District, has gone on record in support of CUSD Board Resolution 1314-29 to terminate early the special taxes levied upon residents of Mission Viejo affected by Community Facility District (CFD) No. 87-1. Developers often use CFDs, commonly known as Mello-Roos taxes, to fund infrastructure projects. This change means that taxpayers in Mission Viejo could save up to $42 million.
According to Bryson, “This resolution will not only provide welcome relief for taxpayers, they will also help keep our community moving in the right direction. We’ve proven that higher taxes don’t necessarily mean better schools. In fact, as a CUSD Trustee, I’m proud to say that the recent California District Grade Cards show that Capistrano schools are doing more with less as the top-performing district in the state."
As a trustee on the Capistrano Unified School District, Anna Bryson has been one of California’s leading education reformers, helping to balance the district’s budget while increasing educational excellence.
