""""" The district dug itself out of a deficit it was $1 million in the hole in 2006 and now has a fund balance of $25 million. It started all-day kindergarten. And it figured out a way to replace an outdated bus facility. """"" "

Keep Saving your money 622 because THIS YEAR when you come to the PUBLIC MONEY TROUGH you will find it empty. NO EXTENT IONS of LEVIES!!!!

Listen up old timer--a levy is not a "Sure thing" or a "Right".
Get the money you want from the FAT CAT teachers union and the fat bloated salaries and pensions as well as unneeded bureaucrats and STUPID programs that don't stick with the basics.

EXAMPLE: Stop teaching Spanish to Mexican children who speak fluent Spanish.

Does every School need an assistant principle and a dean? The wastes is endless.

Firing young talented teachers in favor of the SENIOR Senile out of touch old teacher that's just pension building, because of the UNION CONTRACT?

Show us your INTENT by selling all your worldly possessions and donate it to the school district, then lets start talking.
Stay up north.

I am ramping up for this battle see you at the skirmish lines.

Maybe so-- but he will be long dead before me. And then I will have clean up after his mess, his generation left me and my kids.

I would have been impressed if General MacArthur had been resurrected form the dead, but this story ain't it.

Now go back to your soap operas and pretend everything is A-OK.

Please donate all your extra income to the school district- show us how charity works.
