It Couldn't be a better time for a property tax hike after the mention of a proposed 25% school tax hike in the Concord school district. How are we supposed to come up with all this money ? the average pay increases industry wide average 3 to 4 %, lets all pray that Mr Coons has enough sense to keep the increase at the same level.

Mr. Coons doesnt have the sense god gave an oyster. We have a 17% proposed increase from NCCO and 26% from Red Clay. Thats 43%. 43%. No one at the news journal has covered the mismanagement at the county or the corruption (Freebury/Gordan etc). No one is doing a thing. Red clay collects 10,300.00 per student per year. Almost every private school in the county costs less than this, and they dont include kindergarten. Addiionally Red Clay has an exemption from the federal standards allowing them to have more kids per class than the standard. Still they collect 10,300.00 per kid. This is ridiculous. Enough is enough, stop these people before we're New Jersey. PLEASE!!!
