      It also met its first opposition: politicians wary of any possible tax increase and black community members who said the district’s last bond referendum, in the 1980s, didn’t fully deliver on its promise to help inner-city schools.

      Some residents of inner-city communities oppose a bond issue.

      Board members Renier Diaz de la Portilla and Carlos Curbelo cast the opposing votes.

      Curbelo said he thought more time was needed to explore the issue and explain the problem to residents. Plus, he wants the district to move away from property-based taxes.

      Diaz de la Portilla said other options should have been explored, like consolidating under-enrolled schools, and he slammed the idea of any potential tax increase.

      “I don’t believe that more debt is best for our children, ever,” he said.
