TC: Agree with everything you said

No to school bond on ballot. Since 1985 my property taxes have increased 102%. That is obscene and confiscatory.

Can you imagine the horrors of the school board having taxing authority. Hope that never comes to pass.

Fred, fortunately that does not appear to be on the horizon-- at least for now. But the mess we are in is because of a failure of stewardship on the part of the school system and the school board over many years. They deliberately under-invested in capital construction and maintenance in order to divert their resources toward salaries and other purposes. Their thinking was that they could always politicize school construction and maintenance needs with the county commissioners' board, and make it appear it was THEIR fault in order to extract more monies from them.
