Jim Drake asserted the Board of Education would like to substitute a simple majority vote (50 percent plus one) for the current two-thirds required to pass a school-district measure and that the Board intends to place a $250 parcel tax on a future ballot. He questioned the need to raise funds given the Interim Superintendent's remuneration of almost $1,000 per day ($5,000 per week) and the six-figure salaries paid to some district office staff whilst noting HUSD ranks poorly.

HUSD Board member Jesus Armas refuted Jim Drake's allegations regarding voting and a parcel tax.
