Providing Services for Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committees



Outstanding CBOC Member Award

Gina Haynes

For exceptional service as a member of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District Measure J Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee Gina Haynes is awarded the California Association of Bond Oversight Committees’ first Outstanding CBOC Member Award.

Gina Haynes has been committed to ensuring the independence of the committee as required by Proposition 39. Ms. Haynes persistently asks probing questions and steadfastly refuses to concede. The most recent CBOC annual report co-authored by Ms. Haynes found that the district had failed to meet its obligations. School bond oversight and the accountability of school bond proceeds has been advanced by the persistence of Ms. Haynes.

Little Hoover Commission Testimony, CaLBOC, and Current CABOC Directors

      Several CaLBOC directors testified in September 2016 before the California Little Hoover Commission (LHC), a bipartisan independent California oversight agency to promote economy and efficiency in state and local government, including Anton Jungherr and Nick Marinovich. In February 2017, the LHC published their report “Borrowed Money: Opportunities for Stronger Bond Oversight” which included six recommendations to improve the effectiveness of Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committees.
      Former members of CaLBOC wanted to prioritize implementation of the recommendations from the LHC, therefore formed a new association, CABOC. With the dissolution of CaLBOC, CABOC is the only statewide nonprofit organization existing to address the recommendations of the LHC.
      One of the LHC recommendations stated: “Develop easy-to-access online training materials for members of Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committees. Specifically, the Governor and Legislature should direct and authorize one-time funding to the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team to develop online training for local Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee members, with input and assistance from the California Debt and Investment Advisory Committee and the California League of Bond Oversight Committees.”
     California Association of Bond Oversight Committees (CABOC) was incorporated on September 19, 2019 as a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation by Jack Weir and Anton Jungherr. “The specific purpose of this corporation is to provide training, assistance, and encouragement to California School Proposition 39 Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee Members through development of training materials, delivery of online training, conference, workshops, formation of regional groups of California Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committees and representing common interest at the statewide level.”
     Implementation of the LHC recommendations will guide the focus and work of CABOC.
