As we reported today, San Diego County Taxpayers Association President and CEO Lani Lutar has come out swinging in her criticism of the budget document to be considered today by the San Diego Unified School District.

During an interview, Lutar also suggested that the concerns about the transparency of the document could follow the district next year, when it’s expected to place a major bond proposal before voters.

“This is not a good start for a district that’s planning to ask for more money,” she said.

To put it in context, in 1998, when voters approved Proposition MM, the largest bond measure in the county’s history, the ballot argument in favor of the borrowing was cosigned by the taxpayers association.
