These are the same clowns who wanted to put a 25 year old kid on the school board.

Its the same as the city itself -- they overbuilt & overspent. Now the amt. coming in from the restaurant tax has peaked the chickens are coming home to roost. When you over-spend eventually you have to cut back. Sounds like they'll be good the next 2 years & then its going to hurt.

And they can't raise taxes either any more as they're @ the max millage already. Guess that big fat high school wasn't worth it, was it? lololol

Old Mr. Hirsch was smart. He could smell when the time to get out was right & he picked a good time. Get out while on top & let the other people spend everything into oblivion.

Cuts come next. They'll have a big ass new high school but no special bells & whistles programs because they won't be able to afford it.

Are we now seeing the results of 20 years of the Walkers leading the OS School Board? They have done great damage to our community.
