Readers are against bond referendum [UPDATED]Published 10:07am Wednesday, March 27, 2013 Updated 12:10pm Wednesday, March 27, 2013
I’m against it
Am I the only one to notice the “spontaneous” outpouring of letters urging us to rethink our decision of just a few months ago to not take on a greater tax burden to build Elysian fields for our “underpriviliged and under-served” youth?
Do the people supporting this latest assault on family budgets really believe that their desires for verdant and modern facilities for their organically nourished and pampered offspring somehow transcend the harsh financial realities facing many of our homeowners?
Do they have any inkling of the swelling resentment of the working and retired owners of homes toward those who relentlessly demand more, more, more while giving back less and less?
Who gave the school board the right to disregard the wishes of the people who elected them?
Is a requirement for being a public school administrator a character which believes himself to know better what his community has to do than the people themselves?
Vote no against the arrogant demands made by the school board to pay for projects we have already turned down, and defeat the referendum on April 2.
