This I'd just like the 1 cent school tax. If you give every soccer mom enough scare tactics they will believe that something has to be done. The teachers and principals at Fairhope Elementary convinced all the stay at home moms that it would be disastrous if it failed to pass. I say these women campaigning need jobs.

You are absolutely correct about how gullible soccer moms are. Just wait until their kids are out of public school and the next vote comes up to increase taxes for public schools. These soccer moms will be the 1st to vote against it. Unfortunately, a lot of people who weren't soccer moms did not go to the polls to vote against the school tax and now all of us have to pay for what only a small minority of the Baldwin County residents voted for.
