The geniuses have finally figured out that there is no money and probably less in the coming years. They now think that they can write grants to cover the 1.3 million and keep everything that they promised the kids would have if people voted down the merger. The problem with grant writing is that it is usually for specific things like special education or reading improvement programs. The money has to be used a certain way and can't be used for sports programs. Maybe they will decide to try the "screw your kid so my kid can play sports" method at the next meeting. We can listen to them cut kindergarten and elementary teachers to save sports. After all, it was really only about what would benefit their kids and not ALL of the students.

These aholes hide behind the "it's for the kids" thing and they'll try it again at the budget vote. But people have caught on to that bs. It was all about them, the selfish bastards.

The only worse aholes are the ones who sit on topix and gripe about the aholes. Don't assume every person who participates has some evil plan to make life better for themselves. That would be like assuming, based on your post, that you're like all the rest of the whiners who will never be able to move on. Vote is over. I don't like the outcome but constant bitching won't change a thing, will it?

From what I hear many of the NO voters group that were at the first advisory meeting have jumped ship and were not at this one. I guess when they found out there solutions were not legal than they gave up. HMMMMMMMM good job.

That means you weren't at the meeting either "from what I hear". Get off your ass, stop bitching and go do something about it. At least do one of the three.

They had a selfish plan.

Their kid won't make the team, won't be the at the top academically, don't want my kid to ride a bus or it inconveniences me. Yup it's all about them.

Oh and the VOTING has only just begun.

Don't think so, this is perfect. Dumbass people buried the merger with only a hope and a pray AND found there is no hope or a prayer.

What did i constantly hear??? "NOTHING PROMISED MONEY IS A GUARANTEE!!!"

NOW the tards are hoping to survive on grants...OMG!!! Want to talk about not a guarantee, you go to a meeting asshole.

I think you're the selfish one for keeping all of this knowledge to yourself and not blessing our community with your wisdom. "Oh and the VOTING has only just begun." Such drama. You must know everything about everybody. Quit whining would ya? And for pete's sake stop using topix as your news source.

There will be a vote to lift the tax cap and regardless of the outcome there with be subsequent votes, correct?

No whining, I can't wait to see the community response when they see what they will be ask to vote for and I can't wait to see the outcome.

They ask us all to pull together, to help with the upcoming school budget. We should pull together even though they manipulated, lied and suppressed info to get "no" votes.

And they remind us to remember it's about the children.

What a sad group.

I get to vote NO this time. The Yes's were pissed after the vote. At this time the No's realize they were lied too and they're pissed. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT BUDGET VOTE! Too funny.
