The people are fed up with every tax day the schools are on the ballot and sometimes they create their own tax days. What does a special election cost the taxpayers these days. The words that "this is not a new tax" insults the people's intelligence. We do not get a refund on our property taxes when a levy fails, so who then received the refund.
People are losing their homes, the food banks are empty, unemployment is 13 percent, and the dollar is losing its value. Each household must cut back to the bare basic. You might want to call city hall and ask for the money they throw away. Skateboard parks for 30 young folks, Secrest Auditorium, Gant Stadium, etc. This mess has to stop and you must live within your budget and stop the scare tactic at every election.
We have given a large amount of money for new schools, new furnishings, new equipment and the blood of this community. The schools must get away from this tapeworm attitude.
