Those big yellow signs are a reminder to vote today, FOR LPISD BONDS.

These signs are posted by OUTSIDERS who are trying to control your vote and take away our industry tax dollars.

Send a clear message to them - STAY AWAY FROM OUR KIDS -

VOTE FOR THE BONDS TODAY -

TAKE CONTROL. SEND THOSE OUTSIDERS PACKING.

The polls at CITY HALL and BAKER 6TH GRADE CAMPUS are open from 7 AM today to 7 PM.

No "outsider" cares enough about LP to come there and post signs about voting it down... Seems to me the only "outsiders" who have a stake in this are the companies/persons who stand to gain from the passage of the bond... Typical conservative technique of stating the exact opposite of what the facts are or situation is to manipulate matters in your favor.
Vote This Down until the powers that be are willing to engage in discussion with more of the taxpayers who will be footing the bill.
Time to vote

Read the required legal language at the bottom of the signs about who funded the "anti LPISD" message. These people are not from here!

You might be surprised what outsiders might and can do. I don't know if outsiders are involved or not,but the Koch brothers are interfering in small town elections all over the country. The Koch brothers and others like them are trying to rig elections in small towns all over the country.

Elaine ,I am not advocating for or against the bonds. I am also not trying to BUY elections.

I said my mom is in the tea party and they told her to vote for the bonds. I am NOT a tea party nut. I love my mom but she has been brainwashed by her tea party friends. It is her right and her choice to follow the tea party. I paid attention to WHO the tea party was ,since its inception, and I will never support them.

No, you defeated your own taxpayers.... People who have a right to ask questions, and demand answers from the people whom their taxes pay their HUGE salaries.... You must have a life time supply of the Kool aid.

I know Grover Norquist will be outraged from the results of this democratically held election in which all taxpayers had the right to campaign for or against. They also all had every chance to have their voices heard through their vote. I know the election was not based on what the framers of the constitution intended , they never wanted an election where every one had the right to vote and everyone only got one vote. Are they spinning in their graves?

While I will agree with you about the one vote for everyone is fair and the process on that end is democratic, I must disagree with the availability of voting, specifically the early voting. The school district set-up these "Fine Arts" nights and other set-up events to have early voting jump from campus to campus each night corresponding to their choosing. Thus, the voting is no longer exactly fair as the framers had intended as you are pressuring low-information voters and using the emotion of having them vote at a school where they were attending an event.

So while yes, one vote one person and all that was democratic and the way the founders had intended, I don't think the framers would have wanted you going to be entertained and then voting at Mount Vernon.

You misunderstood my post. The framers NEVER intended for every citizen to have an equal vote. Women were completely excluded from voting, and slave owners got an extra votes ,depending upon the number of slaves they owned......Etc.

If I was going to have to pay an extra thousand dollars a year,that I was against, there would be nothing to keep me from voting. If people care enough they will find a way to vote. If they don't vote ,that is there problem.
