no way in hell am i going to believe they're
going to build a 3.1 million dollar school
without raising taxes. How dumb do they
think we are ?

cheaper to fix the Middle School. They let
buildings run down so you buy them new ones.
could get a new vo ag building with state
grants no tax increase. all this bullshit
benefits outside businesses not Pierce City
education.

don't you think the sooper and school board
members need their kick-back money from
construction more than you need your hard
earned tax dollars ? Shame on you for being
selfish !

better check out the credentials of the
construction company and architect who will build
any new building for Pierce City school ! The
same company built the classroom at Verona High
School whose roof just collapsed from snow,
destroying all that tax-supported expensive
computer equipment. Big construction companies
build cheap crap buildings which are unsafe and
cost taxpayers later too much to maintain in
heating and cooling bills. Look before you leap
into buying buildings ! Just ask the people at
Verona.

best pay off your past debts before taking on a
new twenty year debt. Your kids will be the ones
saddled for paying off a cheap constructed
building.

don't forget to vote No on April 5 to latest scam
by outside construction/ banking interests- same
types who ruined the economy now trying to bankrupt
the school by borrowing as if the cows never come
home debt-wise. What good will a new school do you
when it is your home or farm fore-closed on 'cause
they raised your property tax? We ought to sue the
school board for all the taxmoney they already wasted
to benefit Springfield construction; KansasCity
banks; etc. etc. None of it went to education that's
sure.

I see the same old B.S. is being shovelled out by
the Superintendent as the last bond elections. "Death
Trap Hallway ?" Why didn't you fix it in all this
time ? Contradiction : if you have been putting
money into school repair, then why hasn't it been
done ? Conclusion: the Super hasn't put a dime into
any maintenance so the taxpayers will buy him a new
building and he will get a fat commission from the
outsiders who will profit from this while taxpayers
get saddled with a twenty year debt ! All these
crocodile tears about student's safety- it's the
Super whose endangered them by not keeping up the
maintenance ! We don't need a new building.We need
a new administration who works for taxpayers not
outside big business ! Taxpayers are again being
treated like mushrooms : kept in the Dark and
fed manure !
no more property taxes

all increases in your property tax end up in the
pockets of administrators and their business
cronies from the MSBA. None of it goes to education.
They don't even maintain the buildings they have
so your Superintendent should fire himself first
of all for deliberately letting them run down fors
starters. That'll save taxpayers $100,000 right
there. Cleaning out school board members who
let outside businesses run your school will save
you another $300,0000 in wasted money every year.
Vote no on April 5 until you clean out corruption
in school administration.
