Confronting voters with two new proposals to boost school funding — a parcel tax and a facilities bond — on the same ballot would cause “voter fatigue,” said Mark Young, a financial advisor who is helping San Diego Unified plan its facilities bond proposal.

“If you put it on the same time, there’s no question” the parcel tax would jeopardize the bond, Young said at a Monday meeting of a bond advisory group.

His criticism echoes worries within the school district that the two plans could conflict.
