According to a survey prepared for Los Alamos County during the first two weeks of December, the UNM-LA bond issue is likely to fail, while the LA Public Schools referendum is likely to pass.
The two questions are now in the hands of voters.
The survey by Southwest Planning and Marketing of Santa Fe is based on 408 telephone interviews with registered Los Alamos voters and was designed to test their awareness of the UNM-LA and Los Alamos Public Schools bond issues and, more generally, their attitudes about bond issues and education in Los Alamos.
In stark terms, only 28 percent of the sample population expected to vote on the UNM-LA question and of those voters, 56 expected to vote against, while 16 percent were undecided. If approved, the UNM-LA vote would add a 2-mil levy ($2 for each $1,000 of net taxable value of property in the county.) The most common reason for voting against the UNM-LA issue was “by far” because “taxes are already too high” or that the voter was opposed to higher taxes.
