Turchanik, While it is true that Senior Citizens built this community, they also have some responsibility to the community in which they live. Be assured that when the polls turn to helping the senior citizens, they'll want the community to rally around them, too.
It is disheartening to hear people who no longer have children in the schools, vote against helping the schools in the form of a tax increase (which, by the way amounts to roughly $20 or less per month for the average household). They benefitted from everyone (seniors and young, struggling families) when their children were in school, but don't want to allow the new generation of kids to have the opportunity their kids had?
Times, they are-a-changing. The kids that are benefitting right now are the same kids who will be making these decisions for us when we are older and believe me, I want them rallying around me when I am a senior citizen and need support. If we don't ALL have a hand in educating them and makking them well-rounded human beings, we will be left with a bunch of adults who never had a chance, voting down senior issues because they don't care or not voting at all. It's one big communal circle!!! Glad you are not on the board now.

Talk to me when you are a senior citizen - you will be crying a different tune.
