“[Building a new] Peabody Stadium is a $39 million project. People ask me, ‘How can you spend so much money on that project when you have so many financial needs?’ I want to make clear that we can only spend facility dollars ​— ​like through Measures I and J bond programs ​— ​on facilities. We can’t take that money and spend it on general operations. And by the way, [for] the Peabody Stadium project, $11 million of external resources [were] brought to that project ​— ​$6 million [in state funding] for seismic upgrades, and the Foundation for Santa Barbara High School fundraised $5 million.”
