Improve Your Schools and Protect Local Taxpayers

WINWIN_Final Production_Createspace_path

To upgrade facilities, California’s more than 1,000 K-14 districts must ask voters to pass General Obligation bonds raising local property tax rates. With insight and humor, Win Win by Dale Scott, California’s leading schools financial advisor, demystifies the often complex but potentially transformative process of planning, structuring, passing and selling K-14 GO bonds.

“From one of the most innovative (and ethical) financial advisors in the country, Dale’s views on the world of public finance should be resource number one for any and all public officials.”
Ron Bennett, CEO
School Services of California

“Packed with information, yet easy to read. A Win Win for concerned taxpayers and citizens across the state.”
Donald P. Wagner, Assembly Member (R)
68th District 

Win Win is filled with insights about a business far too few citizens and school officials understand. Comprehensive, thorough and well-organized.”
Tatia Davenport, Deputy Executive Director
CASBO

“This book is the perfect tool for taxpayers to become knowledgeable about the basics of school bond finance. By making a complex subject understandable, this book is a great resource.”
Felipe Monroig, Former President & CEO
San Diego County Taxpayers Association

“Dale has done the impossible – he’s actually made reading about school and college bond finance interesting. If there is a school bond in your future, I strongly encourage you to read this book to increase your chance for success.”
Brice Harris, Chancellor
California Community Colleges
