Weatherford school bond is on the ballot for voters in May. 107 million. There has been very little information about it for the voters to see what the money is for just a vague story in paper unless there was another story from the first one that I may have missed. It seems only fair the school be clear about the plans

They have held two public meetings to detail the specifics. Watch the Democrat or listen to QXFm for meeting dates and times

That's because they release as little as possible so their people are the vote majority.
It's law that the dates have to be released but you'll notice they aren't jumping to inform us. YOU have to find it if you want the info. THEY know what's best for us, not the other way around. They gripe about Obama and I hate him too, but they're doing the same thing.

I will vote against any bond election proposed by the school district - just like Weatherford College tried to get one by the voters, so is Weatherford ISD.

HOW DOES A STORY BURIED DEEP IN THE DEMORAG COUNT as informing us? PLEZ EXPLAIN OBTHINKUKNOWB?
It was not "buried" in the Democrat. Front page.
But I don't expect you to read.
Just react and squawk.
Or bray.
And why would you care about taxes? You don't own anything.

To those posters who have children in the weatherford school system, will you be voting yes or no, and why? As a parent I am concerned about the safety of our kids and also about over crowding. This seems like a great idea but no one wants a tax increase!

I will vote for it. Where do you put the kids that have moved into the district in the last 10 years?
Also, if they need to hire police at each campus--I'm all for it.

They already have police at each school. You that are voting for a bond - do you own property? How long have you lived in this county? There are many, many ways they can save money without voting in a bond. For one thing, they can utilize the empty school buildings. I suppose you that are voting yes have fallen for the tired old excuse, "anything for our children"!

Yes, I live in this county and have lived here for 8 years. Mary Rose I am sure you do not have a child in the school system at this time. I have a child going into elementary and a child at Tison the security at both of these schools is horrible. I would not even call it security because its not going to keep anyone out. Just because someone may not agree with your opinion does not make their opinion wrong. If the bill passes great if it doesn't well I guess they will figure something else out.

Once again you spout off without knowing any of the facts. For example, there are only 3 police officers assigned to the entire district. That's a far cry from an officer at every school.

Eight whole years - I may not have a child but grandchildren surely count - my ancestors came to Parker in 1870 - we have been here a long time and have seen many changes - some not to the benefit of the citizens. With this bond, your grandchildren will still be paying for something that is no longer useful to them. Are you willing to saddle them with debt? Do you know just how the children are suppose to be safer with more money, how will the school system spend this money? Better to arm the administrators than have paid guards.

Now if only three officers are assigned to all schools - how do they cover all the above locations?
