Skip the pools, give taxpayers a refund

  • Article
text size: AAA

I respect the District 211 superintendent and the school board, but the spending of $15 million dollars for five pools is a show stopper. Do we really have to do this now, all five pools? Should we first improve the educational program?

Yet, the money comes from not donations but from a reserve of $112 million. Yet the $112 million is called an "educational fund reserve"?

The economy is languishing. How about a refund to the hardworking citizens of District 211? During the last two campaigns for the school board, 99 percent of the people I spoke to were adamant that the taxes are going to destroy their ability to live here. Does anyone have any compassion for the people paying these bills? It seems that the school board continues to live in a bubble, denying reality. Instead of dealing with new pools, how about repealing Common Core? This is a Trojan Horse already inside that will destroy our freedoms. Fellow citizens, you must get engaged, we have to work together to re-establish our state and national priorities.
