BTW, read the instructions! You must sign the back of the envelope! I suspect that your ballot will be discarded without it!  :( :(

I spoke with a man in Howard this morning who said he is voting no, but for other reasons than mine.

I think that is terrific! I did like his reason, unfortunately I am not at liberty to disclose what it was.

It simply means folks have been talking and I find communications is a very important factor.

10.85 or up to 14.5 mill property tax INCREASE... USD 282 TAXPAYERS ON THE HOOK FOR $230,000+ UP TO $310,800+ PER YEAR FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS!

Based on the last Census, we are losing about 2% of our county population per year.  At that rate, who will be here to pay the bill Z& just how many kids will be here to enjoy this white elephant?

Let's buy books & teachers rather than buildings & playgrounds.

OR

Enjoy your 20 something per cent tax increase!

Do the math & use your head.  Seen the price of hamburger or the number of folks who have given up even looking for work lately?  We are in difficult times.  Let's not open ourselves for more.
