Thank you fools for paying for Trojan Stadium. Thank you fools for paying for admin buildings and parking lots. Thank you fools for paying for worthless teachers, principles, and superintendents. I pray your kids turn out alright.

The reporter faied to mention the wage tax that is 1.7% of earned income in CASD. The .5% goes to the township and 1.2% to the school district. Anyone know how much that produces each year? All surrounding school districts wage tax is 1.0%. CASD gets much more benefit from this bad tax than others. Thank you to those who rent and work. The real estate taxes would be higher. But the landlord passes his property tax on to you in higher rental fee. Both caught in a catch 22!
