His audit of San Joaquin Delta College shows that money from a voter-approved bond measure was spent on other things…such as state-of-the-art athletic facilities and electronic signs. 

Hallye Jordan is with the State Controller’s Office. 

“Voters vote to fund these types of projects and when the monies are misspent that erodes voter confidence and their feelings that their tax dollars are going where they were told they were going to go.” 

Jordan says the college failed to follow state laws that require strong oversight of voter-approved bonds. 

In a statement, a San Joaquin Delta College spokesman said…quote: We believe that the funds have been spent appropriately. We will however, take the findings under consideration.
