EUGENE, Ore. -- A new poll suggests that a majority of 4J voters could support a November bond measure, but the depth of their support is relatively shallow.

School board members reviewed the poll at Wednesday night's meeting. The telephone survey, which included 400 likely voters, found that 56 percent of voters could support a $450 million bond measure. However, only about 30 percent, or one in three, described their support as "strong."

Support for a bond measure increases as the total amount of the levy goes down, the poll said.

"I want to be good stewards of other people's money," board member Evangelina Sundgrenz said. "And I want to be able to go out with a bond that looks at our future, that we don't sell ourselves short and don't sell our community short."

The majority of board members appear to support a bond measure in the range of $375-$400 million.
