January 29, 2016 – Albuquerque Public Schools and CNM are asking voters to approve $575 million dollars in a mil levy and general obligation bonds to fund capital improvements projects that include buildings, technology and public safety upgrades.

APS says the bonds are crucial to address crumbling infrastructure and other immediate needs around the district. But will some voters turn out against the bonds after the scandals last year in the APS administration, which led to the resignation of the new superintendent after only a few years on the job?

 

NMiF producer Sarah Gustavus sits down this week with a community leader and the head of the Capital Master Plan at APS to talk about the bond request.
