Why i am voting NO

Reason 1
There is no budget deficit. Only a proposed deficit in 2015
Reason 2
They want north of 600k for a synthetic football field.
Reason 3
The campaign is being run by a resident of bellefontaine.Has no problem with raising taxes he does not pay. Look it up on the auditors page.
Reason 4
We are in a recession, now is not the time.
Reason 5
IL taxes are the highest in the county, enough is enough!
Reason 6
Your turn........

Reason 1: Correct it's a projected deficit which is why they want money before it becomes a deficit. If it doesn't pass then they'll have to make a lot of cuts.

Reason 2 Is 100% wrong. Football field has nothing to do with the levy. Football field is being paid for with donated funds. I believe they have the money already but the school put off building it because they didn't want it confused with the levy.

Who cares about reason 3.

Reason 4 and 5 are valid.

A perfect reason why retarded people should not be allowed to vote.

Last year the farmers taxes went up approx 30% due to revaluation and reduction of CAUV credits. I have asked on previous post... what did the school do with the additional revenue from the CAUV adjustment that the farmers had to pay. The Indian lake School has some of the highest paid salaries of any of Logan County school districts.
Yes , they say that private donations are going to pay for the new football field. however it doesn't tell you that the cost of maintenance of the field belongs to the school. Also there are more injuries on the artificial grass then there is on real sod. Yes it looks better, but ask anyone who has played on both and they will tell you the grass field is much more forgiving than the hard artificial field.
The problem is, as I have stated in the past, is our school leaders are educators and not business people. They can be very smart in books, but when it comes to running a business and making good business decisions, they fall short. I say, Let educators do what they do best and let business people make business decisions where they excel, because whether you like it or not, the Indian lake school is a 30 million dollar business that educates our kids. We need to do the best we can with in a balanced budget and have other options than just asking for more money or threaten to cut programs. Untill I see some effort to change things at the school, my vote will be NO

This has nothing to do with party politics. It has has everything to do with the facts and balancing books.

Avoid doing any business with Thompson Dunlap and Heydinger. They are for raising your taxes. Thanks Gabe!

Tomorrow is a very important day, and not just for our nation but locally as well. The proposed Indian Lake school levy needs to be voted down. I'm not saying this because I don't think they need it but because a problem needs to be fixed.
it's time those is the position to better the school need to be held accountable. If all you do is keep giving more money, all they are ever going to do is keep asking for it. I guarentee that if this levy passes within the next five years they will be asking for another because this one will no longer cover their expenses.
I know cost go up but do you know any other business who can pass a tax to give them more money to operate? In fact, when the economy took a crash all of those in management positions at Honda took a pay cut. The school needs to be ran the same way, as a business. You can't keep giving them money.
Fix the problem, which is some of the current administration, and I for one, would support the school with loyalty. But if the administration does not support the community, why should the community support them? Many of the current teaches feel the same way. They too agree that some of the administration need to go.
Starting with Mr. Shaner!!!!!!!!!!

So far, about 80% of everyone I have talked to have voted no. Maybe now something will get done.

Take care of the problem, put the levy back on the next time, and I will vote for it. So will many others!

its funny how the people that live in indian lake school district are mostly poor and the school is always asking for more money. people want the best for their kids and if anyone in that area could afford it, the levy would pass every time. its just pure greed on the school's behalf and they know it.

The guy behind the campaign does not even live in the district. He is an attorney that lives in bellefontaine. Interesting isn't it. Looks like those lazy union members got stopped today.
