So taxes didn't go up...this year. They'll make up for it later with a larger increase.

What do you call a DASD budget that freezes school taxes at the current ridiculously high level?
A: Not Good Enough!
Hopefully, the newly-elected School Board will make the difficult cuts that the lame duck Spendberg toadies refused to make.
My question for Screwie Stewie: Mayflower or Allied Van Lines?

One of the two people, Tignall, who voted against this budget, apparently because they didn't feel the cuts were deep enough was just defeated in his re-election. Sometimes it helps to know what the heck is going on before you vote.

Carroll Tignall told me that he voted against the budget because Superintendant Weinberg had anounced that a powerful York County legislator had told him on the phone that there would be more State funding coming than originally planned for.
Based solely on that phone call the Supertinendant thought that it was reasonable and prudent to trust that verbal agreement (worth the paper that it's printed on, LOL) to the extent that some previously cut programs could be restored.
I don't trust figures just appearing in thin air.

No new taxes.
Teachers being blamed for a broken healthcare system.
Pay-Day check cashing operation opening in the old Triangle Motor building.
Beginning of the death spiral for quality education, property values, and lifestyle in DASD.
Time to move.

My point was regarding voters, not Tignall and that SOME people who agree with Tignall probably voted against him because they thought he was part of the problem. In other words, they didn't know who they were voting for/against. Or those that agree with him didn't get to the polls and those that disliked Tignall were more numerous that the ones that did.

That's how most elections are lost.
