I will vote no for school bonds, don't care for the plans, sure don't care for more improvements to track and field.Let's wait
for taxes to roll in for oil wells being drilled, and houses to be built, increase the tax base, instead of increasing people already taxed to the limit.

Scraggly you need to take a little time and learn how bonds and property taxes work. Small minds like yours make large problems at the ballot box.

The sub par facilities is the large problem. It is the perfect time for a bond election as 1. interest rates are at an all time low, 2. Construction work is slow right now so contractors are bidding low just trying to survive. 3. There is an oil boom on the radar screen that if it hits will grow the tax base and allow the taxing entities the ability to lower the tax rate while floating the bond at the same time.

That post was hard to read, you should work on your sentence structure, punctuation, and spelling.
It is clear you do not know how long it would take to save up the funds to pull off a construction project like the one that is on the table even with a doubled tax base. Not even in the wildest speculation is a doubled tax base dreamed of with the looming oil boom. The continued upkeep of the old buildings and their energy wasting systems is funding that should not be wasted and would be put toward the repayment of the bond. Once again I task you with learning how bonds and taxes work.

You will vote no yet you can not provide a lucid argument to validate a vote of "no". That makes you a C.A.V.E person, Citzens Against Virtually Everything.

C U you are wasting your time, Voters like scraggly can not get passed their own over valued self worth to see the big picture. It is too bad an I.Q. test is not required for a voter registration card.

Plan B will be scale back plans, increase the tax rate to near the roll back rate, and maybe try another bond election during the next election cycle.
