2018 Bond Issue

Question 5: A Bond for the Maine Community College System

Graduates of Maine’s community colleges form the bedrock of the Maine economy and our communities. They are highly trained nurses, firefighters, precision machinists, IT professionals, accountants, chefs, automotive technicians, plumbers, electricians, and more.

Maine’s community colleges deliver on their promise of high quality, low-cost education and training, but investments are needed to provide students with increased access to modern facilities and instructional equipment that meets their needs and the needs of Maine employers.

Question 5 is a smart investment in affordable higher education. This question on the November 6 ballot asks:

“Do you favor a $15,000,000 bond issue to improve educational programs by upgrading facilities at all 7 of Maine’s community colleges in order to provide Maine people with access to high-skill, low-cost technical and career education?”

For KVCC, Question 5 will mean $2,190,731 for the College, and provides funds...

  • For capital equipment to support programs in technical trades and industrial mechanics,
  • For upgrades to education infrastructure and instructional technologies, and
  • To replace and insulate aging roofs, windows, and facades.
