            THANK YOU MEASURE G VOTERS
           FOR MAKING ALL THIS POSSIBLE!

                                                           To the voters of Konocti Unified School District:

                                       I am honored to update our community and all the voters that made the 2004 Measure G Bonds
                                       possible and now a huge success. As we start our 5th year of construction projects it brings me
                                       great pride to inform you that we are near completion of the projects we promised the voters. In
                                       most areas we have exceeded what we originally planned by obtaining additional funding.

                                       For instance, in the area of technology we have upgraded our entire computer network and

                                       the federal government. This infrastructure has allowed us to upgrade the Voice Over IP phone
                                       system throughout the district and to build some of the highest speed connections available in the
                                       county.

                                       We have also secured nearly 6 million dollars of joint use funding and an additional 8 million dollars
                                       in modernization funding through the State of California.

                                        We can all look with great pride at the accomplishments of our community. As I watch people
                                       from other teams walk into our gymnasium for the first time, and hear their comments it brings me
                                       right back to the very beginning when we were looking for a source of pride for Konocti Unified
                                       School District.

                                       Thank you to Measure G Voters for making this all possible!

                                       With gratitude,
