Condoms, bond on local ballots

A measure that would authorize the issuance of a $51 million bond for kindergarten-through-eighth-grade schools in the Castaic area was put before voters on Tuesday.

At press time, the bond was passing 56.8 percent to 43.1 percent with 55 percent of the votes in.

The bond measure would modernize school facilities, upgrade technology and allow the district to spend its general fund to keep teachers as much as possible and equip classrooms.

In county measures, Los Angeles County voters appeared to be favoring a 30-year extension of a half-cent transportation sales tax, according to early returns Tuesday, but it was unclear whether the measure will receive the two-thirds majority necessary to pass.

A measure that would make the county assessor’s position an appointed rather than an elected position appeared to be going down to defeat.

Meanwhile, the measure to require condoms in adult filming was passing.

Condom use would be a condition for obtaining shooting permits. Porn producers would pay a fee to get permits, and the funds would be used to pay enforcement costs.

Michael Weinstein, executive director of the AIDS Heathcare Foundation, spent more than $1.6 million on Measure B, according to county Registrar-Recorder’s office figures.
