YOU CAN'T SPELL MONEY W/O “O” -
BSC, CA – Birds of prey are anti-birds. These birds chase away or feast on other, smaller, unaware birds who aren't of the same feather. Birds of prey are easy to spot in nature, but in human nature that is usually not the case, since people tend to see with their ears. This is the reason for an 'oversight committee'. If everyone was going to Heaven there would be no need for such groups, but alas, this just isn't the case.
In 2016, the Riverside voters were sold Measure O, a band-aid of upgrades, safety issues, and repairs to rundown elementary schools around this town. Voters were rallied by two political groups, both pro Measure O. Riverside is an old city and the heart of the county. Government buildings, like domes, are everywhere. The city gets what it wants, except when it doesn't. It is the job of the Measure O Citizens Oversight Committee to make sure the measure's intent of what the people's tax money is spent on, is what was promised in selling that tax to the public.
The Committee is unelected but not unaware of school board members, so public input is vital, and this includes the students at UCR, whose future is touched by this issue through, yep, you guessed it – money [for soccer fields]. Even given this final exam period, four students did manage to come late but had to leave before the Committee meeting finished. This was a far cry from the first meetings which were at UCR.
