How do we stop this insane and crippling rise in property taxes? Who is looking at how the money is spent, and to make those spending more accountable. While I believe strongly that our schools consume more than their fair share (teacher aides, tenure, raises not in touch with reality, summers off, excessive holidays, pensions, etc.)there are probably many other "drains" as well. One Great way to stem the tide would be to consolidate elections. Once per year only. I note that the school budget and expense issues usually rate their own election, completely off-cycle and with limited notice. Kind of ensuring that those interested and with a stake to gain by passing get out and support the ridiculous budget increases, while others - especially in this economy cannot find the time to participate in multiple yearly balloting.
