I may come off as a child hater (which I am not) but I will have to vote NO on this 55 Million Dollar school bond. I can barely pay my property taxes as it is and the price of food and gas will continue to rise. This is a time to tighten our belts. It would be prudent to pay off the current loan before asking the citizens for more money. I don't understand that if they were going to buy the land anyway with money they have in the budget why did they lead us to believe the large sum was to include land? If they have the money for the land why not take that off the top cost and get a lesser loan? There are other concerns too. Most businesses that I have talked to say they will have to pass the cost on to their customers if there is an increase in the property taxes. So this does indirectly affect senior citizens who think it doesnt concern them.

Von: Gilmer had a bond up for a new school, they didn't have the land yet. Then they found some land which was over a capped gas or oil pipe line. It is all about money, these board member give favors out to contractors with something in return. Until you get some people who care about CHILDREN elected on school boards you will continue to have this problem. Electing doctor, lawyers, preachers on the school board has proven not to work in the behalf of the children. A doctor wants to treat you not cure you. A lawyer wants to defend you for a fee. A preacher to pray for you. All have $$$$ signs.
