Bond Issues have become vital in order to provide adequate school district facilities to serve K-12 students. We need to provide our children with sound school buildings, just as they need strong instructional programs.
When it comes to your Bond Issue the most important factor is strong community support, which requires campaigning. Managing a bond campaign requires careful orchestration of numerous resources and individuals to assure a successful election. Campaigning for a Bond Issue is an intense process and you only want to do it once!
Miller-Davis understands the stress and burden placed on school district's shoulders to pass a bond. We have extensive experience in successfully managing bond campaigns, having recently completed over 20 K-12 Bond Issues. Through this experience, we have developed effective bond campaign strategies.
As your Construction Manager, you can rely on us to take an active role in your bond campaign by establishing and implementing successful strategies. This relieves some of the pressure and conserves resources of the school district. We work in collaboration with your Citizens Committee, Administration and Design Professional to enhance communication and community participation to pass the Bond.
We have supported many districts with their bond campaigns by implementing innovative strategies to identify and track yes voters. Each strategy is unique, and developed to fit with the school district s community. To support the strategy, you need a core group of people who are passionate about the bond program and representative of the entire community. Here are a few suggestions to assist you in a successful bond election:
The most successful campaigns are grassroots campaigns - friends, family and neighbors coming together for the benefit of their school district!
What makes Miller-Davis unique is that we are there with you through every step of the campaign process.
"Miller-Davis' Bond Campaign Specialists were amazing! Chloe and Nicole gave 110% to Maple Valley Schools and without them it wouldn't have been possible to have such a successful bond election. They were here weekly to lead, strategize and support our citizens committee, becoming an honorary member of the Maple Valley community. Miller-Davis kept us organized and continuously pushed our citizens committee to achieve our yes voter goal. Further demonstrating their strong commitment to our campaign was Election Day. They were in our community all day - working the polls and keeping the committee on track with the critical phone call reminders. Our entire citizens committee is eternally grateful for all of Miller-Davis bond campaign efforts. I would highly recommend Miller-Davis!" said Michelle Falcon, Superintendent of Maple Valley Schools.
We believe it is an honor to build institutions of learning for our future generations. Building is our passion, fueled by the commitment to the communities we serve. If you are considering a bond issue, we are ready to help you start strategizing and planning for a successful bond campaign.
