Newark's Current Bond-Related Debts

Our City Auditor is an honest guy. In an effort to be better informed as a citizen and candidate, I asked him for information on our bonded projects. I asked this in part because I am a proponent for using bonds to develop a City Broadband Network which would be repaid via the service fee. Either way, here is the information he provided me (as typed by the Auditor and sent via email):
