BTC referendum fails

Blackhawk Technical College's $4 million referendum fails in a 57% to 42% vote.

Blackhawk Technical College Foundation Director Kelli Cameron says the results were disappointing, although she realizes some voters were turned off by the fact that the referendum had no sunset clause, however, technical colleges don't have that option like public schools do.

Cameron says Blackhawk Technical College appreciates the support the referendum received, however she doesn't expect it will be back on the ballot any time soon.
