The North Orange County Community College District placed Measure X, a bond proposal, on the Tuesday, March 5, 2002 ballot in the hope that voters would approve $239 million dollars in spending. In an effort to inform students, signs were posted throughout the campus. The signs raised policy concerns because they showed advocacy for a school bond issue, not following guidelines set in the Associated Students Publicity Code, but the North Orange County Community College District said that the signs were only for informational purposes. Measure X passed with a 57.4 percent approval. This is a Hornet newspaper advertisement for the measure.
